The great Endeavor Army

Representative Text

1 See that mighty host advancing
At the gracious King's command;
'Tis the great Endeavor army
Marching on to save our land!
On they come with hope and courage,
In the joy and strength of youth;
They are sure to be victorious,
For their cause is that of Truth.

See that mighty host advancing
At the gracious King's command;
'Tis the great Endeavor army,
Marching on to save our land!

2 Jesus leads this glorious army,
And no foe have they to fear;
While they trust their great Defender,
While to Him they follow near.
Love's the banner floating o'er them,
And God's Word their sword of might;
See, the hosts of sin and darkness,
Flee before that army bright! [Chorus]

3 Oh, how glowing are their faces,
And how joyful is their song!
Ever praising their great Captain,
As they bravely march along.
Hail the great Endeavor army!
In its ranks today there stan
Future leaders of our nation,
Who shall rule and bless our land. [Chorus]
