Representative Text

1 Soldiers of Immanuel, go forward in His name,
Holy warfare waging, pow’rs of sin engaging;
Lift His royal standard and His truth divine proclaim,
Till the world shall own Him King.

Refrain:
Go forth, go forth, and battle for the right,
Defeat the foe and put his host to flight;
Ye soldiers of Immanuel, press on
Until the victory is won.

2 Soldiers of Immanuel, go forward to the fray,
Songs of triumph singing, shouts of vict’ry ringing;
Follow your Commander, He is with you every day;
Onward! is the battle cry. [Refrain]

3 Soldiers of Immanuel, the battle soon shall cease;
In a home of splendor we shall homage render
Unto Jesus, He who is the glorious Prince of Peace,
When we lay our armor down. [Refrain]
