Representative Text

1 We've enlisted in an army that can never know defeat,
Let us battle as good soldiers, true and brave;
Never fearing, never halting tho' the enemy we meet,
For the Lord Jehovah's arm is strong to save.

Marching onward, ever onward,
We are trusting Christ the king who does before us;
Marching onward, ever onward,
While the banner of the cross is waving o'er us!

2 Ere the evil days draw nigh us, in the joy and strength of youth,
While the skies are smiling o'er us bright and fair,
We are following our Savior in the way of life and truth,
And at last with Him the victor's crown we'll wear. [Chorus]

3 Unto Him whose blood has bought us, ever loyal let us be;
All we are and have doth unto Him belong;
Fall in line, then, Christian soldiers, swell the shout of victory!
Ever serve the King with gladness and with song. [Chorus]
