Representative Text

1 Forward now, the voice of Jesus bravely calls,
I am Leader and Commander, follow me,
Take my word and know whatever here befalls,
I will lead my trusting ones to victory.

Forward go,
Forward go,
Take my word in faith and hope, and follow me,
Forward go,
Forward go,
I will lead My trusting ones to victory.

2 Buckle on the armor, cast away all fear,
And remember that the soldier must obey,
When the conflict rages I am always near,
for I promise to be with you all the way. [Chorus]

3 Ev’ry soldier in the army of the Lord,
Who is faithful to the humble trust I give,
When the battle’s ended shall receive reward,
And with Me in glory shall immortal live. [Chorus]
