1Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers
Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side?
Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Savior, we are Thine!
2Not for weight of glory,
Not for crown and palm,
Enter we the army,
Raise the warrior psalm.
But for love that claimeth
Lives for whom He died,
He whom Jesus nameth
Must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Savior, we are Thine!
3Jesus, Thou hast bought us,
Not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own Life-Blood,
For Thy diadem.
With Thy blessing filling
Each who comes to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing,
Thou hast made us free.
By Thy grand redemption,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Savior, we are Thine!
4Fierce may be the conflict,
Strong may be the foe,
But the King’s own army
None can overthrow.
Round His standard ranging
Victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging
Makes the triumph sure.
Joyfully enlisting
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Savior, we are Thine!
5Chosen to be soldiers
In an alien land,
Chosen, called, and faithful,
For our Captain’s band.
In the service royal,
Let us not grow cold,
Let us be right loyal,
Noble, true, and bold.
Master, Thou wilt keep us,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side,
Savior, we are Thine! Amen.
