On the Lord’s Side
1 Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers,
Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side?
Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side?
Who for him will go?

response:
By Thy call of mercy,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;
Saviour, we are Thine.

2 Not for weight of glory,
Not for crown and palm,
Enter we the army,
Raise the warrior-psalm;
But for Love that claimeth
Lives for whom He died,
He whom Jesus nameth
Must be on His side.

response:
By Thy love constraining,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;
Saviour, we are Thine.

3 Jesus, Thou hast bought us,
Not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own life-blood,
For Thy diadem;
With Thy blessing filling
Each who come to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing,
Thou hast made us free.

response:
By Thy grand redemption,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;
Saviour, we are Thine.

4 Fierce may be te conflict,
Strong may be the foe,
But the King’s own army
None can overthrow.
Round His standard ranging,
Victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging
Makes the triumph sure.

response:
Joyfully enlisting
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;
Saviour, we are Thine.

5 Chosen to be soldiers
In an alien land;
‘Chosen, called, and faithful,’
For our Captain’s band;
In the service royal
Let us not grow cold;
Let us be right loyal,
Noble, true, and bold.

response:
Master, Thou wilt keep us
By Thy grace divine,
Always on the Lord’s side,
Saviour, always Thine!

Who is on the Lord’s Side?
1 Who is on the Lord’s side?

Who for him will go?

chorus:
Who is on the Lord’s side?

By Thy grand redemption,
By Thy grace Divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;

But for love that claimeth
Lives for whom He died,
He whom Jesus nameth
Must be on His side.

3 Jesus, Thou hast bought us,
Not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own lifeblood,
For Thy diadem;

All who come to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing,
Thou hast made us free.

But the King’s own army,
None can overthrow;
Round His standard ranging,
Vict’ry is secure,
For His truth unchanging
Makes the triumph sure.
