Track Name: Never Mind, Go On!
VERSE 1:
In the fight, say, does your heart grow weary?
Do you find your path is rough and thorny,
And above the sky is dark and stormy?
Never mind, go on!
Lay aside all fear, and onward pressing,
Bravely fight and God will give His blessing;
Though the war at times may prove distressing,
Never mind, go on!

CHORUS:
When the road we tread is rough,
Let us bear in mind,
In our Savior strength enough
We may always find;
Though the fighting may be tough
Let our motto be:
Go on, go on to victory!

VERSE 2:
Faithful be, delaying not to follow
Where Christ leads, though it may be through sorrow;
If the strife should fiercer grow tomorrow,
Never mind, go on!
Cheerful be, it will your burdens lighten,
One glad heart will always others brighten;
Though the strife the coward's soul may frighten,
Never mind, go on!

VERSE 3:
When downhearted, look away to Jesus,
Who for you did shed His blood most precious;
Let us say, though all the world should hate us:
Never mind, go on!
Do your best in fighting for your Savior,
For His sake fear not to lose men's favor;
If beside you should a comrade waver,
Never mind, go on!
Track Name: Soldier, Rouse Thee!
VERSE 1:
Soldier, rouse thee! War is raging,
God and fiends are battle waging;
Every ransomed power engaging,
Break the tempter's spell.
Dare ye still lie fondly dreaming,
Wrapped in ease and worldly scheming,
While the multitudes are streaming
Downwards into Hell?

CHORUS:
Through the world resounding,
Let the gospel sounding,
Summon all, at Jesus' call,
His glorious cross surrounding.
Sons of God, earth's trifles leaving,
Be not faithless but believing;
To your conquering captain cleaving,
Forward to the fight.

VERSE 2:
Lord, we come, and from Thee never
Self nor earth our hearts shall sever;
Thine entirely, Thine for ever,
We will fight and die.
To a world of rebels dying,
Heaven and Hell and God defying,
Everywhere we'll still be crying:
Will ye perish, why?

VERSE 3:
Hark! I hear the warriors shouting;
Now the hosts of Hell we're routing;
Courage! onward! never doubting
We shall win the day.
See the foe before us falling,
Sinners on the Savior calling,
Throwing off the bondage galling,
Join our glad array.
Track Name: That You Love Me
VERSE 1:
You show me Your love in all You have done,
Creating the deserts, the jungles, the seas,
The heavens, the mountains, the land and the oceans,
In awe of the notion You made them for me.

CHORUS:
How wide is Your love,
How long is Your love,
How high is Your love,
How deep is Your love,
That You love me.

VERSE 2:
As I cling to grace I grow in my faith,
You gave me Your Son so I give you my life,
Now I understand while holding Your hand,
That trusting Your plan is my sacrifice.

VERSE 3:
Lord, I am convinced that nothing exists,
To keep me away from Your unending love,
I offer You praise and glory each day,
Sing, “Holy You Reign Hallelujah.”
Track Name: No More! No More!
VERSE 1:
Have we not known it, have we not heard it?
Power unto God belongs.
Yet do we daily find in His mercy
Themes for the sweetest songs;
Healing the wounded, raising the fallen,
Making the blind to see,
Saying to all who seek His face
These precious words of redeeming grace:

CHORUS:
No more! No more! He remembers sins no more,
They are pardoned for ever, and He will never
Bring them up against me any more.
I’ll hear no more
Of the evil days of yore;
I’m a pardoned offender,
And God will remember them no more.

VERSE 2:
Joy-bursts of singing gaily are springing
With every day that starts;
If we were silent then would the stones cry
Shame on our fainting hearts.
O banish the sadness, sing now for gladness
Glory in Christ, the Lord!
Who is a God like unto Thee,
One who can pardon iniquity?

VERSE 3:
Safe in the dark day; safe in the bright day;
Safe till my latest breath;
There is endurance in this assurance,
Stronger than fear of death.
When the accuser comes to the judgment,
Seeking my soul to claim,
I have a token in the blood.
I have the word of a pardoning God.
Track Name: I Am Saved
VERSE 1:
I am saved, I am saved,
Jesus bids me go free;
He has bought with a price
Even me, even me!
Wondrous love, wondrous love,
Now the gift I receive;
I have rest in His word,
I believe, I believe!

CHORUS:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah to my Savior!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, amen!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah to my Savior!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, a—men!

VERSE 2:
I am cleansed, I am cleansed,
I am whiter than snow;
He is mighty to save,
This I know, this I know!
I was weak, I am strong
In the power of His might;
And my darkness He's turned
Into light, into light!
Track Name: Storm the Forts of Darkness
VERSE 1:
Soldiers of our God, arise!
The day is drawing nearer;
Shake the slumber from your eyes,
The light is growing clearer.
Sit no longer idly by,
While the heedless millions die,
Lift the blood-stained banner high,
And take the field for Jesus.

CHORUS:
Storm the forts of darkness,
Bring them down, bring them down!
Storm the forts of darkness,
Bring them down, bring them down!
Pull down the devil's kingdom,
Where'er he holds dominion;
Storm the forts of darkness, bring them down!
Glory, honor to the Lamb,
Praise and power to the Lamb,
Glory, honor, praise and power,
Be forever to the Lamb!

VERSE 2:
See the brazen hosts of Hell,
Their art and power employing,
More than human tongue can tell,
The blood-bought souls destroying.
Hark! from ruin's ghastly road
Victims groan beneath their load;
Forward, O ye sons of God,
And dare or die for Jesus.

VERSE 3:
Warriors of the risen King,
Great Army of salvation,
Spread His fame, His praises sing
And conquer every nation.
Raise the glorious standard higher,
Work for victory, never tire;
Forward march with blood and fire,
And win the world for Jesus.
Track Name: I Choose Life
VERSE 1:
This day You have called
Heaven and Earth to witness,
That You have given me a choice;
I see Life and Death,
I hear Blessings and Curses,
And in Your grace I rejoice:

CHORUS:
I choose life, I choose life,
That me and my children
May live and love the Lord.
I choose life, I choose life,
That me and my children
May live and love the Lord.

BRIDGE:
Other hearts my turn,
Other ears may deafen,
Other eyes may hide,
But I will worship!
Track Name: You Are The Lord
VERSE 1:
You show Your love to the thousands,
By forgiving sin and rebellion,
Even so, no sin goes unpunished,
We atone for all generations.

CHORUS:
You are the Lord,
You are the Lord,
The merciful, gracious God,
You are slow in Your anger,
And rich in Your unfailing love,
And faithfulness.

VERSE 2:
We seek only Your favor,
Oh Lord, please go with us,
We give you all our transgressions,
Accept us as Your possessions.
Track Name: Marching On In the Light of God
VERSE 1:
Marching on in the light of God,
Marching on, I am marching on;
Up the path that the Master trod,
Marching, marching on.

CHORUS:
A robe of white, a crown of gold,
A harp, a home, a mansion fair,
A victor's palm, a joy untold,
Are mine when I get there.
For Jesus is my Savior,
He's washed my sins away,
Died for me on Calvary's mountain;
I'm happy in His wondrous love,
Singing all the day,
I'm living, yes,
I'm living in the fountain.

VERSE 2:
Marching on through the hosts of sin,
Marching on, I am marching on;
Victory's mine while I've Christ within;
Marching, marching on.

VERSE 3:
Marching on in the Spirit's might,
Marching on, I am marching on;
More than conqueror in every fight;
Marching, marching on.

VERSE 4:
Marching on with the flag unfurled,
Marching on, I am marching on;
Preaching Christ to a dying world;
Marching, marching on.
Track Name: The Son of God Goes Forth To War
VERSE 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.

CHORUS:
We shall not lose the fight of faith,
For Jesus is our Lord,
We lay all carnal weapons down
To take his shining sword

VERSE 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?

VERSE 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?

VERSE 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,
Through peril, toil and pain
O God, to us may grace be given
To follow in their train!
Track Name: To The War! To The War!
VERSE 1:
To the war! To the war! Loud and long sounds the cry;
To the war! Every soldier who fears not to die;
See the millions who're drifting to Hell's endless woe,
O who in the name of Jehovah will go?
(O who in the name of Jehovah will go?)

CHORUS:
Fighting on,
Fighting on,
With the blood and fire
We will never tire.
We'll fight until the Master calls.

VERSE 2:
To the war! To the war! Louder rings out the cry;
Who'll enlist in this Army all Hell to defy?
All the armor of Heaven our God will bestow,
O who in the might of Jehovah will go?
(O who in the might of Jehovah will go?)

VERSE 3:
To the war! To the war! Every man to his post;
Go, care for the dying; go, seek for the lost;
Hark! The converts are singing, their bright faces glow,
As they joyfully shout: To the war we will go!
(As they joyfully shout: To the war we will go!)
Track Name: All Your Anxiety
VERSE 1:
Is there a heart o'erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing,
All your anxiety, leave it there.

CHORUS:
All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus.

VERSE 2:
No other friend so keen to help you;
No other friend so quick to hear;
No other place to leave your burden;
No other one to hear your prayer.

VERSE 3:
Come, then, at once; delay no longer;
Heed His entreaty, kind and sweet;
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.
Track Name: That You Love Me (Reprise)
VERSE 1:
You show me Your love in all You have done,
Creating the deserts, the jungles, the seas,
The heavens, the mountains, the land and the oceans,
In awe of the notion You made them for me.

CHORUS:
How wide is Your love,
How long is Your love,
How high is Your love,
How deep is Your love,
That You love me.

VERSE 2:
As I cling to grace I grow in my faith,
You gave me Your Son so I give you my life,
Now I understand while holding Your hand,
That trusting Your plan is my sacrifice.

VERSE 3:
Lord, I am convinced that nothing exists,
To keep me away from Your unending love,
I offer You praise and glory each day,
Sing, “Holy You Reign Hallelujah.”
