1 Onward Gospel Army,
Boys so brave and strong,
Lift on high your voices
In our Army song.
Pressing ever onward,
Singing all the way,
Singing in the night time,
Singing in the day.

Refrain:
Onward Gospel Army,
Boys so brave and strong,
Lift on high your voices
In our Army song.

2 Jesus Christ our Captain
Once a little boy,
Knows our ev’ry sorrow,
Knows our ev’ry joy.
Very close we follow
In His footsteps brave,
Into homes of sorrow,
Trying souls to save. [Refrain]

3 To our Christ all-glorious,
Each of us belong;
We shall be victorious,
Tho’ the fight be long.
Lift on high our standard,
Hear our motto true,
See our royal colors,
Red and White and Blue. [Refrain]
