Representative Text

1 God is marshaling his army
For the rescue of his truth,
He is calling now to battle
Both the vet'ran and the youth.
You can hear his mighty summons
In the thunder of his word;
Let us then be valiant soldiers
In the army of the Lord!

Marching on, Marching on,
Let us keep the campfires blazing,
Let us sound abroad his word;
Marching on, Marching on.
There are glorious vict'ries coming to the army of the Lord.

2 Let the watchman on the tower
Keep his post with sleepless eyes,
Let the privates out on picket
Guard against the least surprise,
For the order is forever
To be ready at a word;
There must be no sleeping soldiers
In the army of the Lord! [Chorus]

3 'Tis a war that lasts forever
'Tis a conflict with the world;
There can be no furlough granted,
There must never flag be furl'd
We can never cease the conflict,
Till the summons home be heard,
We have all for life enlisted,
In the army of the Lord! [Chorus]
