Loyalty to Christ

Representative Text

1. Our hearts have felt the rapture of the presence of our God,
We’re pressing on to vict’ry in the paths too long untrod,
The cross of Christ our symbol and salvation thro’ His blood,
Our hosts are marching on.

Loyalty to Christ assures us
Victory so grand and glorious;
All our foes shall fall before us,
Our God is marching on.

2. We’ve heard the call of Jesus as it echoes thro’ the soul,
Louder than the call of trumpet or the solemn drumbeat’s roll,
The God who calls to duty, or heart-service asks the whole,
As He is marching on. [Refrain]

3. We’ve hosts of sin to conquer in the name of Christ our king,
We’ve souls to win for Jesus till with joy the heav’ns shall ring,
And Gospel words to carry till the distant isles shall sing—
That God is marching on. [Refrain]

4. In Loyalty to Jesus will we ever do His will,
The God that leads our forces will direct and bless us still;
His everlasting promises He will in us fulfill,
As He is marching on. [Refrain]
