"SOLDIERS OF JESUS"

Soldiers of Jesus, soldiers of Jesus!

Verse One:
Soldiers of Jesus,
Clad in God's bright armor,
Onward, still on-ward,
Drive against the foe.
Girded with truth,
God's breastplate always wearing,
Shod with His Gospel, ever onward go.

Chorus One:
Soldiers of Jesus, soldiers of Jesus,
Ours is an honor the angels would know.
Heralds of glory, guardians of freedom,
Soldiers of Jesus,
Ever onward go!

Verse Two:
Soldiers of Jesus,
Fear ye not the battle;
Faith is our shield
In fighting for the Lord;
Always at hand
The helmet of Salvation;
Trusty forever is the Spirit's sword.

Chorus Two:
Soldiers of Jesus, soldiers of Jesus,
Ours is an honor the angels would know.
Heralds of glory, guardians of freedom,
Soldiers of Jesus,
Ever onward go! Let's go!

[Repeat Intro]

Verse Three:
Soldiers of Jesus, our great Leader bids us
Pray with all supplication day by day;
Thus we speed on to bear the glorious tidings,
Till sin and heathen darkness flee away.

Chorus 3:
Soldiers of Jesus, soldiers of Jesus,
Ours is an honor the angels would know.
Heralds of glory, guardians of freedom,
Soldiers of Jesus, ever onward go!
Soldiers of Jesus, ever onward go!

Soldiers of Jesus, soldiers of Jesus!
