We Are Under Marching Orders To Go In


We are under marching orders to go into all the world,
Jesus gave us the commission long ago,
In his name to preach the Gospel to the lost in ev’ry land,
Till the whole, wide earth is love and grace may know.

Refrain:
Take your orders from the Master,
Take position in the line;
We shall conquer, for we follow
Jesus Christ, the Lord divine.

We are under marching orders from the lips of our dear Lord,
He has chosen us as heralds of his grace,
And he bids us witness for him till the banner of the Cross,
Shall wave over a redeem’d and holy race. [Refrain]

We are under marching orders from our great and mighty King;
Let us do our duty at the Lord’s command,
And if we are true and faithful all the world shall be redeem’d,
And salvation’s stream shall flow through ev’ry land. [Refrain]

We are under marching orders and we never will retreat,
Till our Master has subdued his many foes,
Till we plant salvation’s banner over ev’ry hill and plain,
And earth’s desert places blossom as the rose. [Refrain]
