Representative Text

1 Jesus, give thy blood-washed
Army Universal liberty;
Keep us fighting, trusting calmly
For a world-wide jubilee.
We shall have the victory.

2 Thou hast bound brave hearts together,
Clothed us with the Spirit’s might,
Made us warriors for ever,
Sent us in the field to fight.
In the Army
We will serve thee day and night.

3 ‘Neath thy sceptre foes are bending,
And thy name makes devils fly;
Captives’ fetters thou art rending,
And thy blood doth sin destroy.
For thy glory
We will fight until we die.

4 Lift up valleys, cast down mountains,
Make all evil natures good;
Wash the world in Calvary’s fountain,
Send a great salvation flood.
All the nations
We shall win with fire and blood.
