Representative Text

1 O behold this valiant army marching by,
See their banners proudly wave toward the sky;
Singing as they're marching all along the way,
Looking up and lifting up from day to day.

O see the Epworth army marching by,
Look up and lift up is their battle cry;
Look up to Jesus with a faith not dim,
Lift up the weak ones, point them to him.

2 Look upon this army as they march along,
"All the world for Jesus" is their battle song;
Jesus is their Captain, he will lead them right,
Looking up and lifting up, they'll win the fight. [Chorus]

3 Where this army marches, clouds all disappear,
For they carry sunshine, happiness and cheer;
Heavy hearts grow lighter, hope is made to live,
Blessings fall upon them for the aid they give. [Chorus]

4 Come and join this army, be a soldier true,
Old or young, a glorious work is waiting you;
Looking up and lifting up you'll win the prize,
Then awaits a crown of life above the skies. [Chorus]
