Representative Text

1 Onward comes a legion,
And with joy they sin;
See upon their banner;
“Soldiers of the King.”

Soldiers of the King of Glory!
Publishing salvation’s story!
Wondrous tidings do ye bring,
Noble soldiers of the King!

2 Mighty is their armor,
Loud their plaudits ring;
Singing praise eternal,
To their Lord and King. [Refrain]

3 Onward, noble legion,
To the Grand Review,
Where the King of Glory
Waits to welcome you. [Refrain]
