Behold! A Royal Army
, 7


1. Behold! a royal army,With banner, sword and shield,Is marching forth to conquer,On life’s great battlefield;Its ranks are filled with soldiers,United, bold and strong,Who follow their Commander,And sing their joyful song:
[Chorus]Victory, victory,Through him that redeemed us!Victory, victory,Through Jesus Christ our Lord!Victory, victory, victory,Through Jesus Christ our Lord!
2. And now the foe advancing,That valiant host assails,And yet they never falter;Their courage never fails;Their Leader calls, “Be faithful!”They pass the word along;They see his signal flashing,and shout their joyful song:
3. Oh, when the war is ended,When strife and conflicts cease,When all are safely gatheredWithin the vale of peace,Before the King eternal,That vast and mighty throngShall praise his name forever,And this shall be their song:
