Theres A Battle Now Begun


There’s a battle now begun,
There’s a vict’ry to be won;
Face to face the legions stand,
Each a bold determined band;
Every human soul enlisted,
Sworn a leader to obey;
On which side, which side are you enrolled today?

Refrain:
On which side is your name enrolled?
On which side your allegiance hold?
On which side? On which side?
Who shall triumph in the judgment day?
On which side is your name enrolled?
On which side your allegiance hold?
On which side? On which side?
On which side is your name enrolled today?

You are either on the side
Of the blessed Crucified,
Or you swell the mighty throng
Of the hosts of sin and wrong;
Show your color and be loyal
To your comrades in the fray;
On which side, which side are you enrolled today? [Refrain]

O how sad will be defeat,
And the victory, how sweet!
Then desert the ranks of sin,
And the fight of faith begin;
For the truth shall stand forever,
Though the world should pass away;
On which side, which side are you enrolled today?
