Representative Text

1 Where my King leads on, till the fight is won,
You will find me close beneath His banner bright;
With the brave and true I am going thro’,
Till the forces of my King shall win the fight.

Refrain:
Where He needs me, where He leads me,
All the way day by day,
Where He needs me, where He leads me
With my blessed Savior I will gladly go;
Where He needs me, where He leads me,
All the way day by day,
Where He needs me, where He leads me
I will follow Him who loved me so.

2 In the battle fray there is need today
For the loyal and the ever true and brave,
Who will follow on till the fight is won,
And the banners on the field of vict’ry wave. [Refrain]

3 Where my King leads on, till the fight is won,
And we stand upon the field of victory,
He will lead aright, thro’ the thickest fight,
And we’ll follow where His banner waves for me. [Refrain]
