1
Father of this army, Captain of our soldiers,
May your glory fill the earth.
As this world grows colder, may your troops be bolder;
May we fight with only love.
May the crosses we bear be the weapons of our warfare,
May we even more dare for you,
May we even more dare for you.

2
Let our uniform be holiness and mercy,
Justice clothed with grace and truth.
Those who speak be fearless, those who serve be blameless;
Dreamers old and visioned youth.
Save us when we look past Jesus as an outcast;
Shining, let us hold fast to you,
Shining, let us hold fast to you.

3
Breathe into these dry bones, search the Spirit's deep groans,
Speak into these calloused minds;
Faith to make our dreams new, hope as we await you;
Love to serve with joy and might.
Onward to the conquest,
North to south and east to west;
Forward to the glorious fight of love,
Forward to the glorious fight of love.
