1 Do you hear the noise of battle,
As it strikes upon your ear,
As the mighty host advances for the fray?
Do you see the shining banners,
As the army draweth near,
Who are fighting for King Jesus day by day?
Do you hear the victor’s song,
As the army moves along,
While the banner of the cross on high they wave?
They are working for the Lord,
In accordance with His word,
And the souls that are in bondage they will save.
2 Do you hear the song of triumph,
As the foes are put to flight,
And the chariot of salvation rolls along?
See the grand old gospel army,
With their robes all clean and white,
While His praise and adoration is their song. [Refrain]
3 Do you hear the clang of armor,
As their foe they now subdue,
While their helmets of salvation brightly shine?
In the name of mighty Jesus
This great fight they still renew,
In accordance with God’s holy word divine. [Refrain]
4 Do you see them pressing forward
To old Jordan’s sullen stream,
Where they see the fields of Canaan from the shore?
Do you hear the trumpet sounding,
And celestial glory gleam,
As they cross to be with Jesus evermore? [Refrain]
