1 Hark, I hear the gospel army,
As they grandly move along;
And the Lord of life and glory,
Is the captain of the throng!
Not for earthly power of honor,
They are moving on the foe;
But to conquer all for Jesus,
Who has loved the sinner so.

Refrain:
Hark! hark! I hear the gospel army,
Pressing on by land and sea;
Hark! hark! I hear the gospel army,
Marching on to victory.

2 Hark, I hear the gospel army,
And their shining armor see;
Onward, gainst the hosts of evil,
They are marching valiantly!
Now I hear the shouts of triumph
Mingled with the trumpet’s sound!
Even where the foe is strongest,
They will make it holy ground. [Refrain]

3 Hark, I hear the gospel army,
With their legions strong and true;
And the ranks are ever swelling,
And the banners bright to view!
They will ne’er give up the struggle,
Till the victory is won!
They will take the world for Jesus,—
They are grandly marching on! [Refrain]
