Encore, ‘Soldiers of the Lion’

By popular demand, one more time–Chuck Girard and Soldiers of the Lion.

There are Christians who just cringe all over at the military metaphor, never mind the New Testament resorts to it again and again.

This song reminds me of one of my favorite lines in all the Bible, spoken by David:

“Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (I Samuel 17:26)

It is a question we can still ask today; and you can come up with as many answers as I can.

  1. In this hour, we certainly can use hymns proclaiming the army of Our God! Thank you, Lee. This, to me, is quite a powerful hymn. I feel sorry for namby-pamby Christians who don’t acknowledge that He does have an army. Who do they think will defeat Satan and defend them?!

  2. This is a very great song. Here is another suggestion: The Lighthouse by John Starnes.
