Representative Text

1 All hail, glad army of mission soldiers,
Enlisted in a noble fight,
The Master calls you into his service;
Go forth and battle for the right!

Then forward, valiant company,
The Lord your courage will renew;
A loyal soldier ever be,
And to the church of God be true.

2 March on, true army of mission soldiers,
Lift high the standard of the Lord;
The host of Satan will fall before you;
Press on, relying on his word! [Refrain]

3 Go forth, blest army of mission soldiers,
Tho’ sin your legions may assail;
With Christ to lead you into the conflict,
No foe against you shall prevail. [Refrain]
