In the Royal Army

In the royal army, soldiers of the King

Author: Fanny J. Crosby
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 In the Royal army,
Soldiers of the King,
Marching forth to conquest,
Joyful let us sing.

Soldiers of Jesus,
Forward let us go,
Onward, trusting, praying,
Braving ev'ry foe;
Soldiers of Jesus,
Lift the standard high,
Onward, Christian soldiers,
We'll conquer by and by.

2 In the Royal army,
Like the tried and true,
Follow your Commander,
Keep Him still in view. [Chorus]

3 In the Royal army,
Faithful to the last,
Great will be our triumph,
When the conflict's past. [Chorus]
