Representative Text

1 I’ll be a soldier, a valiant soldier, too;
I will buckle on the armor of the Lord;
Firm as a rock I will loyal be, and true,
Following the orders written in his word.

Chorus:
Onward! onward!
Not afraid to suffer pain and loss;
Standing for the right, with victory in sight,
Yes, I will be a soldier of the cross.

2 I’ll be a soldier, a faithful soldier, too;
I will never turn my back upon the foe,
Watching in prayer, I will ever dare to do
Faithful service for my Captain here below. [Chorus]

3 I’ll be a soldier, a loyal soldier, too;
Shirking not the duties that are fraught with care;
For there’s a time coming for a grand review,
And I want to muster with the faithful there. [Chorus]
