Hark, 'tis the gospel

Full Text

1 Hark, ‘tis the gospel trumpet sounding far and near;
In the royal army who will volunteer?
Zion’s happy soldiers, clad in bright array,
Hand in hand united, march, march away.

Onward, Onward,
Ever true and faithful, trusting in the Lord;
Onward, Onward,
Ever true and faithful, trusting in the Lord.

2 Where our Commander leadeth we will follow still;
He will guard and keep us safe from every ill;
To the front of battle if He bids us go,
Zion’s happy soldiers fear not the foe. [Refrain]

3 O let us never weary till the war is past;
Then the blessed promise, victory at last;
Do our duty nobly, conquer, though we die;
Now the time to labor, rest by and by. [Refrain]
