Representative Text

1 Go forward, the signal is waving afar,
The hosts of the mighty are marshall’d for war;
All clad in their armor so radiant and bright,
And bearing their colors that gleam in the light.

The hosts of the mighty are marching along;
O, hark to their voices, that lift up a song;
All praise to the Father, his name be adored,
Who gives us the vict’ry through Jesus our Lord.

2 Behold them, behold them as onward they move,
Still turning to Zion their dwelling above;
They follow their leader, and shout as they go,
A crown for the victor, defeat for the foe. [Refrain]

3 Come join this great army; now rally, and sing
Of Jesus, their glorious Commander and King;
O, haste, let us enter the ranks of the Lord,
And know that we never shall lose our reward. [Refrain]
