Representative Text

1 Be a soldier true within the army of the King,
Loyal hosts for Jesus will a glorious vict’ry bring.

Be a true soldier; fight on, fight on;
Victory will soon be won.

2 Never know retreat although the coming foe be strong;
Jesus is thy Captain, soon shall sound the triumph song. [Refrain]

3 Forward go nor falter, O thou soldier of the Lord,
Fight on bravely, thou shalt have the victor’s sure reward. [Refrain]
