1 Soldiers, in the Savior’s army,
Glory in the cross;
Let not Satan’s hosts alarm you,
Glory in the cross,
All your sins shall be forgiven,
All your fears away be driven,
Conq’rers here shall reign in heaven,
Glory in the cross.

Refrain:
Glory in the cross,
Glory in the cross,
God forbid that I should glory save in the cross.

2 Tho’ you pass thro’ tribulation,
Glory in the cross;
Christ is still your sure foundation,
Glory in the cross,
While with footmen you’re contending,
Danger ev’ry step attending,
Think on whom you’re still depending,
Glory in the cross. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ ye here are poor and lowly;
Glory in the cross;
‘Tis his will ye should be holy,
Glory in the cross;
He respects not wealth nor station,
But to all in ev’ry nation,
Freely offers full salvation,
Glory in the cross. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ thy path seem dark and lonely;
Glory in the cross;
Cling to Jesus, Jesus only,
Glory in the cross;
He hath passed this way before thee,
Still in love he’s watching o’er thee,
He will give thee grace and glory,
Glory in the cross. [Refrain]

5 Tho’ thy dearest friends may leave thee,
Glory in the cross;
Let not earthly losses, grieve thee,
Glory in the cross;
All thy losses he’ll restore thee,
Gently clear thy way before thee,
Guide thee safely home to glory,
Glory in the cross. [Refrain]
