Representative Text

1. Go forth at Christ’s command,
Go forth to ev’ry land,
Through loyalty to Christ
Through loyalty to Christ;
Let strong your efforts be
To gain the victory,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ.

Refrain
Onward, onward, army of the Lord!
There’s naught to fear while trusting in His Word;
Go forth to fight the wrong,
And shout the victor’s song,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ.

2. Be brave to help them win
Who strive to conquer sin,
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Point out the path of light,
Be strong to do the right,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]

3. See! Satan’s banners wave,
O haste the lost to save
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Beat back the hosts of sin,
Press on the fight to win,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]

4. O children of the free!
Let this your watchword be:
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Let hills and valleys ring,
While men and angels sing,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]
