The Son of God Goes Forth to War
Band: The Singing Company
From The Red Book Sessions. ; Download sheet music and order album online at http://thesingingcompany.com
The Son of God goes forth to war,
A kingly crown to gain,
His blood-red banner streams afar;
Who follows in his train?
Who best can drink his cup of woe,
Triumphant over pain,
Who patient bears his cross below,
He follows in his train.
We shall not lose the fight of faith,
For Jesus is our Lord,
We lay all carnal weapons down
To take his shining sword
The martyr first, whose eagle eye
Could pierce beyond the grave,
Who saw his Master in the sky,
And called on him to save;
Like him, with pardon on his tongue
In midst of mortal pain,
He prayed for them that did the wrong;
Who follows in his train?
A glorious band, the chosen few
On whom the Spirit came,
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew,
And mocked the cross and flame
They met the tyrant's brandished steel
The lion's gory mane,
They bowed their necks the death to feel;
Who follows in their train?
A noble army, men and boys,
The matron and the maid,
Around the Savior’s throne rejoice,
In robes of light arrayed;
They climbed the steep ascent of Heaven,
Through peril, toil and pain
O God, to us may grace be given
To follow in their train!
