407. The White Horse Cavalry

1 Lo, heaven now opens to rapturous view;
The armies that follow the Faithful and True,
Arrayed in fine linen and armor of light,
With swords of destruction the nations to smite.

Refrain:
All glory to God! We’ll follow the Lamb;
All glory to God! We’ll fight in the van;
In uniform white on our holiness steeds,
We’ll rush to the battle wherever He leads.

2 This campaign of fire shall sweep over the land,
Enlisting the pure that are able to stand;
In columns of glory they follow their King,
Like thunder their songs of sweet melody ring. [Refrain]

3 Speed onward, great army, to judge and make war,
Salvation in Jesus go trumpet afar;
There’re battles, to fight and fair trophies to win,
And perishing souls to be rescued from sin. [Refrain]

4 All honor to Jesus, whose eyes are aflame,
Who wondrously helps us each battle to gain;
He’s clothed in a vesture that’s dipped in the blood
He graciously shed to redeem us to God. [Refrain]
