Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Tune: [Soldiers in the army]
Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Soldiers in the army
Of the Lord our King,
Help along the triumph,
All your forces bring;
Move in solid column,
Strike the pow'r of sin;
Strong, united effort,
Shall the vict'ry win.

Soldiers in the army,
Strike with all your might,
Strike with all your might;
In the name of Jesus,
Strike, and put the foe to flight.

2 Soldiers in the army,
Led by Christ, the Lord,
On to certain conquest,
On to great reward;
Raise aloft the banner,
That the world may know
We are bound to conquer,
And subdue the foe. [Chorus]

3 Soldiers in the army,
To the cause be true,
In this day of battle,
There is much to do;
God will crown with honor,
Ev'ry royal heart;
Rally, soldier, rally,
Do a noble part. [Chorus]

4 Soldiers in the army,
Never leave your post,
Till the Captain bids you
Join the ransomed host;
Then with shouts of triumph
To their ranks ascend,
Swell with them the chorus,
That shall never end. [Chorus]
