Representative Text

1 Soldiers of Jesus, His cross we bear,
For truth and for right all trials dare;
Clad in the armor of faith we come,
We’re marching to Zion our home.

Chorus:
Stand for the right! this our watchword shall ring,
Valiant soldiers of a mighty King,
Right onward we’re pressing with sword and shield,
To error we never will yield.

2 Proudly our banner we bear on high,
The contest we seek is drawing nigh;
Jesus is leading our army on,
The victory soon will be won. [Chorus]

3 Ever upholding the cause we love,
Our trust in the pow’r of God above,
Looking to Jesus, our Saviour, King,
This chorus we joyfully sing. [Chorus]
