1 We are enlisted for the Master,
A joyous band of workers true;
We journey on in shine or shadow,
The great reward in constant view.
Our Royal Leader give us ever,
A faith that shall not be dismayed,
And ever leads the way to conquest,
Then wherefore should we be afraid?

Refrain:
We journey ever, with strong endeavor,
To tell His glory, in song and story;
Till His salvation, shall flood creation,
We are enlisted in His name.

2 Sometimes the conflict rages fiercely,
We almost faint beneath the stress;
Encouraged by our Great Commander,
We take new heart and onward press,
To larger fields of new endeavor,
To higher planes of Christian life,
Determined by His grace to conquer,
To be triumphant in the strife. [Refrain]

3 At last when warfare shall be ended,
And peace shall reign from shore to shore,
We will that army glad triumphant,
Shall rise to praise Him evermore.
What joy to see Him in His beauty,
To look into His smiling face,
And cast our shining crowns before Him,
Who saved us by redeeming grace! [Refrain]
