1 Lo! the army of our King,
Marching on from sea to sea;
Loud their hallelujahs ring,
With the joy of victory.

Refrain:
“The world for Christ, and Christ for the world!”
We shout with glad acclaim,
We shout with glad acclaim,
Till ev’ry soul, from pole to pole,
Confess that glorious name.

2 Hear the marching order: “Go!
Preach the word in ev’ry clime,
Until all the earth below,
Echo with the strain sublime!” [Refrain]

3 See! the banner is unfurled;
See! it floats upon the breeze,
O’er the kingdoms of the world,
O’er the islands of the seas. [Refrain]
