I never heard this hymn before. I stumbled over it while looking for something else.
Wow! Let’s share this, instead.
The son of God goes forth to war… Not the kind of sentiment appreciated these days, in Bible-less, Revelation-poor, wussified churches.
Nevertheless, brothers and sisters, there is a war out there, and it will come in through your window if you don’t go out to meet it.
Fight on the Lord’s side. Read Revelation to find out how it all turns out.
