1. I’ve enlisted in the army of the Lord today,
Fighting ever for the truth and right;
Safely guided by Jehovah in the King’s highway,
He will lead His army day and night.

I’ve enlisted in the army
I am pressing onward day by day,
I’ve enlisted in the army,
And I’m walking in the King’s highway.

2. I’ve enlisted as a soldier for Immanuel,
And I’m going forth to press the fray,
Fighting ’neath the Gospel banner ev’ry foe will quell,
And I’ll gain the vict’ry day by day. [Refrain]

3. I’ve enlisted in the army of the heav’nly King,
Tho’ the battle may be fierce and long;
Some day I shall come rejoicing and my trophies bring,
Then I’ll sing and shout the victor’s song. [Refrain]
