Representative Text

1 Behold a host to vict’ry led
By Jesus, their exalted head;
Its peerless ranks the cross display,
While forth they march in bright array.

In bright array, to endless day,
We’ll sing to Him who led the way
To God’s right hand in Beulah Land,
To dwell with Him in glory.

2 Whate’er the strife, they fear no ill,
The Lord, their Strength, is with them still;
With mighty hand He guides their way,
His righteousness their bright array. [Refrain]

3 In bright array, the ransomed throng
That enter heav’n with holy song,
Their vict’ry won, they joy complete,
Will cast their crowns at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

4 In bright array may we be found,
Among the blest with glory crowned;
And, in that world of endless day,
With Jesus dwell in bright array. [Refrain]
