1  Who is on the Lord's side?
Who will serve the King?
Who will be his helper
Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world's side?
Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord's side?
Who will for Him go?
By Thy call of mercy,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord's side,
Saviour, we are Thine.


2  Jesus, 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,
Saviour, we are Thine.


3  Fierce 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,
Saviour, we are Thine.


4  Chosen 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,
Always on the Lord's side,
Saviour, always Thine.
