Lyrics

There’s a light shining forth.
I can see it on the horizon.
It’s the army of God,
Preparing for war.
Coming conquering, victorious,
O’er the army of Satan,
Nothing shall stand
Before the army of God.

There’s a people emerging;
They are standing on Zion.
It’s the army of God,
Preparing for war.
Overcoming victorious,
With the Sword of the Spirit,
Nothing can stand,
Nothing can stand,
Before the Word of the Lord.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
There’s a light shining forth.
I can see it on the horizon.
It’s the army of God,
Preparing for war.
Coming conquering, victorious,
O’er the army of Satan,
Nothing shall stand
Before the army of God.
