‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

This rousing hymn, sung by Joe Stout, was first published in 1827 and was in most English hymnals by the 1870s–The Son of God Goes Forth to War. It’s occasionally sung to the tune of The Minstrel Boy, which is how I first heard it.

  1. I had never heard this one. It is great. Here is a suggestion for another great song- maybe to post tomorrow? Dallas Holm singing Here We Are.
