‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

I haven’t posted this for us in a while, have I? The Son of God Goes Forth to War, sung by Joe Stout–but the image of a conquering Church is not popular in these days of “go along to get along.”

The hymn shop’s open, boys ‘n’ girls… and not very crowded, just now.

‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

This is a hymn about the martyrs, but let the wicked be warned: Christ will not return just so you can crucify Him again. The saints under the altar (Revelation 6:9) will finally be avenged.

I’m off to a terribly late start today; but it’s raining like crazy, it’s cold, and who even noticed?

I love this hymn–The Son of God Goes Forth to War, performed by Joe Stout. We are in a war of worlds today, and we had better wake up to that truth. Christ vs. Satan, world of life vs. world of death. And there’s no neutrality allowed.

‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

The first time He came here was to shed His blood and be slain in atonement for our sins. The powerful, the wise, and the noble nailed Him to the cross. But when He comes again, it will be to judge the quick and the dead; and there are those who are high and mighty now will be like raw eggs thrown against the wall.

‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

This is the kind of hymn that makes simpering liberal go-along-to-get-along churchmen cringe: The Son of God Goes Forth to War: written in 1812 by Reginald Heber, sung here by Joe Stout. It can also be sung to the tune of The Minstrel Boy.

Let’s not forget that Jesus Christ is King of kings, whose right it is to rule. And the sooner He claims it and establishes His throne, the better.

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.

This wonderful old hymn, sung here by Joe Stout, reminds us that in Christ we are more than conquerors–and let’s not forget it.
