Hymn/Song Information

The Son of God is gone to war A king




The Son of God goes forth to war,
A kingly crown to gain;
His blood red banner streams afar:
Who follows in His train?
Who best can drink his cup of woe,
Triumphant over pain,
Who patient bears his cross below,
He follows in His train.


That martyr first, whose eagle eye
Could pierce beyond the grave;
Who saw his Master in the sky,
And called on Him to save.
Like Him, with pardon on His tongue,
In midst of mortal pain,
He prayed for them that did the wrong:
Who follows in His train?


A glorious band, the chosen few
On whom the Spirit came;
Twelve valiant saints,
their hope they knew,
And mocked the cross and flame.
They met the tyrantís brandished steel,
The lionís gory mane;
They bowed their heads
the death to feel:
Who follows in their train?


A noble army, men and boys,
The matron and the maid,
Around the Saviorís throne rejoice,
In robes of light arrayed.
They climbed the
steep ascent of Heavín,
Through peril, toil and pain;
O God, to us may grace be given,
To follow in their train.
