Enlisted for the King

Representative Text

1 Enlisted for the King,
With loyalty we bring
Allegiance to the Christ
For sinners sacrificed;
His call to arms we heeded,
For soldiers brave are needed
Where foes, in mighty pow’r revealed,
Encamp upon the field.

On to the front like soldiers,
Determined the fight to win;
Faith in the King Eternal,
Will conquer the hosts of sin;
Under the banner glorious
We’re marching against the foe;
Undismayed, unafraid,
Faith in God displayed,
We into the battle go.

2 The bugle call rings clear,
And echoes far and near
Repeat the order—“Go!
Fear not to meet the foe!”
Our Leader grand and glorious
Must ever be victorious!
His righteousness and truth avail,
His word shall never fail. [Refrain]

3 The battle is begun,
And, ere the day is done,
Our flag shall be unfurled
And float o’er all the world!
Then ev’ry land and nation
Shall see His great salvation,
Shall honor Him, His name extol,
And crown Him Lord of all. [Refrain]
