1 I am on the Lord’s side,
Glory to his name!
I am on the Lord’s side,
Love to spread his fame;
I am in his keeping,
Blessings I receive,
Knowing, hallelujah!
In whom I believe.

I am on the Lord’s side!
Lo! he died for me;
I am on the Lord’s side,
Lamb of Calvary;
I am on the Lord’s side,
Just where I should be,
Glory, hallelujah!
That’s the place for me.

2 I am on the Lord’s side,
Faith and hope are strong;
Morning, noon and evening,
Jesus is my song;
Very, very precious
Is his holy name,
And I will proclaim it
Everywhere the same. [Refrain]

3 I am on the Lord’s side,
Who for me did die;
I will love and trust him,
As the days go by;
Tho’ his foes assail me,
Nothing shall offend,
Since my dear Redeemer
Is my royal Friend. [Refrain]
