Who is on the Lord's side?

by Frances Ridley Havergal

Tune: Rachie 11s

1. WHO is on the Lord's side?
Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers,
Other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world's side?
Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord's side?
Who for Him will go?

By Thy great redemption,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord's side;
Saviour, we are Thine!

2. Not for weight of glory,
Not for crown or palm,
Enter we the army,
Raise the warrior's psalm;
But for love that claimeth
Lives for whom He died—
He Christ Jesus nameth
Must be on His side!

3. Thou, O Lord, hast bought us,
Not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own life blood,
For Thy diadem.
With Thy blessing filling
All who come to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing,
Thou hast made us free.

4. Fierce may be the conflict,
Strong may be the foe,
But the King's own army
None can overthrow;
Round His standard ranging,
Victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging
Makes the triumph sure.
