Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

The banner of the cross

We've enlisted in an army that can never know defeat

Author: Maud Frazer Jackson
Published in 1 hymnal

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]
