A good soldier of Jesus Christ.@2 Timothy 2:3

A. R. Wal­ton, 1914 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I’ve enlisted in the army of the Lord today,
Fighting ever for the truth and right;
Safely guided by Jehovah
In the King’s highway,
He will lead His army day and night.

Refrain

I’ve enlisted in the army
I am pressing onward day by day,
I’ve enlisted in the army,
And I’m walking in the King’s highway.

I’ve enlisted as a soldier for Immanuel,
And I’m going forth to press the fray,
Fighting ’neath the Gospel banner
Ev’ry foe will quell,
And I’ll gain the vict’ry day by day.

Refrain

I’ve enlisted in the army of the heav’nly King,
Tho’ the battle may be fierce and long;
Some day I shall come rejoicing
And my trophies bring,
Then I’ll sing and shout the victor’s song.
