The great campaign

Representative Text

1 Lo, a great and mighty army now is marching thro’ the land!
Every soldier brave and loyal, true, and proud of his command;
With a common foe to conquer, and the battle just begun,
They press into the conflict, for the triumph must be won.

Salvation, and honor, and power, and glory,
Today, henceforth, forever, unto our King shall be,
Unto our King shall be,
Unto our King shall be;
We will bear the flag of conquest that shall make the nations free,
When Christ, our King, triumphant reigns from sea to sea.

2 “Forward!” cries the great Commander, and the mighty phalanx wings
Out into the field of action for the glorious King of kings;
Over hill and vale and mountain, while all nature’s voice replies,
Their “Glory, hallelujahs” fill the earth and rend the skies. [Refrain]

3 See, emblazoned on their banner is the name “Immanuel!”
‘Tis at His command, and in His might they march the foe to quell;
No retreat! in life or death no favor asked, no quarter giv’n,
Till shouts of vict’ry shake the world and fill the courts of heav’n. [Refrain]
