Like Ten Thousand Legions Marching


Like Ten Thousand Legions Marching


1. Like ten thousand legions marching

Moves a mighty band of youth,

Boldly taking to all people

Zion’s glorious song of truth.

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. Far across the mighty waters,

Reaching ev’ry waiting shore,

Seed of Abraham and Jacob

Like a mighty lion roar.

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.
