158. Armies of Zion

1 Armies of Zion, the trumpet sounds,
Now unto you comes Jehovah’s call;
Form in the ranks, for the foe surround,
Ready for battle, ye soldiers all.

Armies of Zion,
Fear not the mighty foe;
Armies of Zion,
Forward to vict’ry go.

2 Armies of Zion, thy banner bright
Now to the breeze be it wide unfurl’d;
Beautiful symbol of joy and light,
Bear it in triumph o’er all the world. [Refrain]

3 Armies of Zion, the God above
Leadeth thee on till the war shall cease;
Till unto all He is known in love,
Till over all He is Prince of Peace. [Refrain]
