The Son of God Goes Forth to War -ins183.mid - [Play Midi]
  1. 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

  2. The 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?

  3. 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 tyrant's brandished steel, the lion's gory mane
    They bowed their necks the death to feel: Who follows in their train?

  4. A noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid
    Around the Savior's throne rejoice, in robes of light arrayed
    They climbed the steep ascent of heaven thro' peril, toil, and pain
    O God, to us may grace be given to follow in their train
