1. We’re marching to Canaan, with banner and song,
We’re soldiers enlisted to fight ’gainst the wrong;
But, lest in the conflict our strength should divide,
We ask, Who among us is on the Lord’s side?

Refrain
Oh, who is there among us, the true and the tried,
Who’ll stand by His colors—who’s on the Lord’s side?
Oh, who is there among us, the true and the tried,
Who’ll stand by His colors—who’s on the Lord’s side?

2. The sword may be burnished, the armor be bright,
For Satan appears as an angel of light;
Yet darkly the bosom may treachery hide,
While lips are professing, I’m on the Lord’s side. [Refrain]

3. Who is there among us yet under the rod,
Who knows not the pardoning mercy of God?
Oh, bring to Him humbly the heart in its pride;
Oh, haste, while He’s waiting and seek the Lord’s side. [Refrain]

4. Oh, heed not the sorrow, the pain and the wrong,
For soon shall our sighing be changed into song;
So, bearing the cross of our covenant Guide,
We’ll shout, as we triumph, I’m on the Lord’s side. [Refrain]
