Representative Text

1 I've enlisted in the army of the Lord,
He has armed me with a helmet, shield and sword,
Now to battle for the right,
by the power of Jesus' might,
By His grace I'll conquer thro' His word.

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praises to His everlasting name we'll sing,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We shall conquer thro' our Lord and King.

2 'Tis an army that is ever sure to win;
'Tis the Lord who leads against the host of sin;
Thro' the word that giveth light,
we shall conquer in the fight,
Tho' the enemy be strong within. [Chorus]

3 There are foes on every hand, who seek to harm,
But with us there is an everlasting arm;
With our Captain in command,
we are strong in heart and hand,
And secure against all false alarm. [Chorus]

4 Come and join this conqu'ring army of the Lord;
Let Him give to you a helmet, shield and sword;
By the power of Jesus' might,
you may battle for the right,
You may triumph thro' His royal word. [Chorus]
