Representative Text

1 Soldiers true and loyal in the service of the Lord,
O hasten forth to battle, ‘tis the Captain gives the word;
Clad in gospel armor, you must meet the mighty foe,
For Jesus gives the order, Forward go!

Refrain:
Forward! Forward! ‘tis the Captain’s word;
Hasten to obey,
Where’er the call is heard;
Yours shall be the victory, tho’ mighty is the foe,
For Jesus gives the order, Forward go!

2 Ye who long have loitered, seeking pleasure by the way,
Come, now, and join the army, making ready for the fray;
This is noble service, rich reward it will bestow,
For Jesus gives the order, Forward go! [Refrain]

3 Come and join our army, all whose hearts are with the right,
For with the foe you’re counted if for neither side you fight;
Old and young are needed, rich and poor alike, we know,
And Jesus gives the order, Forward go! [Refrain]
