  1. 1. Like ten thousand legions marching
    Moves a mighty band of youth,
    Boldly taking to all people
    Zion’s glorious song of truth.
  2. 2. Out of ev’ry nation surging—
    Sons of Joseph, Israel’s band—
    Now they spread salvation’s message
    In the tongues of ev’ry land.
  3. 3. Far across the mighty waters,
    Reaching ev’ry waiting shore,
    Seed of Abraham and Jacob
    Like a mighty lion roar.
  4. 4. Come, ye nations, out of darkness;
    ’Tis the time of Christ’s return.
    Heed the Restoration’s message;
    Let its light within you burn.
