Soldiers for Jesus, rise and away,
Hark! ’Tis the war cry sounding today;
Lo! our commander calls from the skies;
Forward to conquest, lose not the prize!

Refrain

Now like an army marching along,
Fearless and faithful, valiant and strong,
Up with our banners, brightly they shine;
March on together, keep in the line.

Soldiers for Jesus, happy are we;
He our protector, near us will be,
Trust in His mercy, changeless, divine;
March on with firmness, keep in the line.

Refrain

Soldiers for Jesus, gladly we go,
Smiling at danger, braving the foe;
Bright are our landmarks, brightly they shine;
March on rejoicing, keep in the line.

Refrain

Soldiers for Jesus, victory is nigh,
Work till we gain it, rest by and by;
O, let our courage never decline;
March on with boldness, keep in the line.

Refrain
