I Am Fighting In The Army Of The Lord


I am fighting in the army of the Lord,
And though dangers thickly round my pathway lie,
I shall never faint or fear, for my Jesus is so near,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die.

Refrain:
I will press the battle on till the victory is won,
And I reach my crown and mansion by and by;
By the grace of God, I know, I shall conquer every foe;
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die.

Often do I meet with Satan by the way,
And His fiery darts so thickly round me fly;
When the shield of faith he sees, then he always quickly flees,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]

Now the world has ceased to be a friend to me,
And the ones I most have loved now pass me by;
But to Him I’ll faithful be who has shed His blood for me,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]

I shall never tire or give the battle o’er,
For the crowning day is coming by and by;
Then through all eternity I shall shout the victory,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]
