Representative Text

1 In the name of our Savior-Commander,
Rejoicing we march to the field;
To the cause unto which He has called us,
Our sacred allegiance we yield;
With the banner of truth waving o’er us,
And the wide battle-field just before us,
Our war-cry the wonderful chorus—
“The world and its nations for Jesus!”

Onward, victorious,
Beneath our banner all-glorious;
In His great name thro’ faith we claim
All the world and its nations for Jesus.

2 Zeal-endued, and with courage undaunted,
No matter how strong be the foe,
With the helmet and sword of salvation,
Like soldiers to battle we go;
Tho’ our foes, strong and mighty, assail us,
We’ve a Leader who never will fail us;
Our war-cry will ever avail us,—
“The world and its nations for Jesus!” [Refrain]

3 When the days of our marching are over,
When warfare and battle shall cease,
When in love, truth and right all victorious,
Earth welcomes the dawning of peace,
Then with saints and the martyrs forever,
Thro’ the One who is strong to deliver,
We’ll meet on the banks of the river
To praise Him, our wonderful Jesus. [Refrain]
