Representative Text

1. We are soldiers of King Jesus,
Clad in armor bright;
And we follow where He leads us,
Fighting for the right.

Refrain
Marching, marching ever onward,
’Neath His banner so bright,
We are soldiers of King Jesus,
Fighting for the right.

2. We are soldiers of King Jesus,
He’s our Captain true,
And whatever He shall bid us,
We will gladly do. [Refrain]

3. We are soldiers of King Jesus,
We’re a loyal band;
We are bold, and brave, and fearless,
True to His command. [Refrain]

4. We are soldiers of King Jesus;
Tho’ the fight be long,
We shall share the victor’s triumph,
Sing the victor’s song. [Refrain]
