Representative Text

1 We’re enlisted soldiers true,
And the land we’re sweeping thro’,
For our God, with pow’rs of darkness to contend,
And although the war be long,
We will cheer the way with song
And find joy in serving Jesus to the end.

Oh there’s joy, oh there’s joy,
Yes there’s joy without alloy,
In the presence of our Saviour there is joy,
With His loving hand to guide,
I am safe what’er betide,
Yes with Jesus ever near me there is joy.

2 Tho’ we wandered far in sin,
Had for years no hope in Him
Who redeem’d us by His death on Calvary’s tree,
He the conquering Saviour came,
And in love He broke sin’s chain,
Giving joy and peace in knowing we are free. [Refrain]

3 Millions lost in sin’s dark night,
Will be brought to see the light,
As it shines in dazzling brightness from the throne,
If by faith in God we stand,
With the Spirit’s sword in hand,
And proclaim the gospel news from zone to zone. [Refrain]

4 Come then join our conqu’ring band,
We have Jesus in command,
And for God and souls we’ll fight while yet ‘tis day,
Then when that glad morning dawns,
With the precious gems we’ve won
And our blessed Lord, we’ll spend eternity. [Refrain]
