1 Army of Jesus, marching to conquer,
List to the war cry, heart is resounding;
Forward, be brave ones, duty is calling,
Signals are flying, trumpets are sounding;
Keeping your armor bright with the Gospel light,
Go ye forth in your Saviour’s might— go!
Still He is watching tenderly o’er you;
Carry His standard proudly before you;
Rally around it, joyfully shout and sing,
Give praise, praise to the Lord, He is our King.

When you reach the gates above,
Welcome will be the words of love:
O ye blest of the Lord, come in—come!
Then will you gladly tell the old story;
Great was the conflict, boundless the glory;
Then will ye ever joyfully shout and sing,
Give praise, praise to the Lord, He is our King.

2 Army of Jesus, marching to conquer,
Growing in numbers, ever progressing,
Steadily moving, firmly advancing,
Peerless in grandeur, crowned with His blessing.—
Cheerfully bear the cross, count the world but dross,
Go ye forth in the Saviour’s name— go!
Legions of darkness cannot alarm you;
Led by the Saviour, nothing can harm you;
Fearless and faithful, never give up the field,
The Lord God is your strength, banner, and shield. [Refrain]

3 Army of Jesus, marching in triumph,
Bold and courageous, doing and daring,
Now you are drawing nearer the Home Land,
Nearer the mansions He is preparing;
On to the strife once more, soon ‘twill all be o’er;
Go ye forth with a steadfast faith— go!
Then by the river, beautiful river,
Resting with Jesus, happy forever,
Greeting the dear ones longing to see you come,
You’ll shout, Glory to God! safely at home. [Refrain]
