Representative Text

1 We're an Army fighting for a glorious King;
We will make the world with hallelujahs ring;
With victorious voices we will ever sing:
There’s salvation for the world.

Refrain:
For the world, for the world, Jesus died, Jesus died,
For the world, for the world, there is room in Jesus’ side.
All the world to save, to battle we will go,
And we ever will our colours boldly show,
With a trumpet voice we’ll let the millions know
There’s salvation for the world.

2 We’re an Army brave, arrayed in armour bright;
We will turn the world from darkness into light;
As we march along we’ll shout with all our might:
There’s salvation for the world.

3 We’re an Army saved, by blood and fire made strong;
And with righteousness we mean to conquer wrong;
This shall be our universal battle song:
There’s salvation for the world.
