Mighty Army of the Young
Mighty army of the young,
Lift your voice in cheerful song,
Send the welcome word along,
Once He died for you and me,
Bore our sins upon the tree,
Now He lives to make us free,
Wait not till the shadows lengthen,
Till you older grow,
Rally now and sing for Jesus,
Everywhere you go;
Lift your joyful voices high,
Ringing clear thro’ earth and sky,
Let the blessèd tidings fly,
Voice of youth so glad and free,
Sing your song of victory;
Sing to all on land and sea,
Light for you and all mankind,
Sight of all by sin made blind,
Life in Jesus all may find,
Jesus lives, O blessèd words!
King of kings, and Lord of lords!
Lift the cross and sheathe the swords,
See, He breaks the prison wall,
Throws aside the dreadful pall,
Conquers death at once for all,
Words: John R. Colgan (1891)
