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.

Soldiers of Immanuel

Soldiers of Jesus! soldiers of the Cross!

Author: J. J. Sims
Tune: [Soldiers of Jesus! soldiers of the Cross!]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Soldiers of Jesus! soldiers of the Cross!
Follow your Captain, counting all but loss;
If you fight the battle you shall gain renown,
And if you are faithful you shall wear a crown.

Refrain 1-4:
March on! March on! soldiers of Immanuel;
March on! March on! singing as we go:
Glory! glory to the Lamb of Calvary!
In His might we conquer ev'ry foe.

2 Soldiers of Jesus! gird ye to the fray,
Stand in your armour in this evil day;
Where the battle rages there may ye be found,
Where the need is greatest that is holy ground. [Refrain]

3 Soldiers of Jesus! lift your standard high;
Write on your banners: Jesus came to die;
By the Cross of Jesus we the vict'ry win,
For the blood of Jesus cleanseth from all sin. [Refrain]

4 Soldiers of Jesus! when the battle's done,
Foes all are vanquish'd, and the vict'ry won;
Then with shouts of triumph we shall hail the King,
When the vaults of heaven with His praises ring. [Refrain]

5 Soldiers of Jesus! of the Lamb once slain,
Know ye that Jesus soon will come to reign;
Lift your heads in gladness, victory is nigh,
Send a shout of welcome through the earth and sky.

Refrain 5:
Come, Lord, Jesus! come and take Thy people home;
Come, O come! we long Thy face to see;
Come, Lord Jesus! claim the kingdom and the pow'r,
Set the earth from all its bondage free.
