Representative Text

1 There’s a mighty army marching;
Marshalled by the Prince of Peace,
O’er them float love’s shining banners,
Day by day their ranks increase,
They are marching, they are marching,
Lifting up along the way,
Sinful souls, the weak and fallen,
Winning back the steps astray.

They are marching,
They are marching,
In His name they do and dare,
They are telling,
They are telling,
Of His wondrous love they bear.

2 Numberless is this great army,
And its ranks are strong and brave,
And they strive to lead to Jesus,
All the world that He may save.
They are marching, they are marching,
Many are the souls they bring,
Won from sin’s dark paths and pleasures,
Unto Christ their Prince and King. [Refrain]

3 Blessed is this mighty army,
Measureless the good they do,
Toiling for the Heav’nly kingdom,
To their Leader, loyal, true,
They are marching, they are marching,
Onward, upward evermore,
Leading multitudes of saved ones,
To the bright eternal shore. [Refrain]
