Lyrics
I'm a soldier in the army of the Lord
Soldier in the army
I'm a soldier in the army of the Lord
Good soldier in the Army

Now when I get to heaven
I'm gonna I'm gonna sing and shout
Ain't nobody there who can turn me out
I'm gonna talk to the Father, sit down with the son
And tell him bout' the mean old world I just came from

I'm a warrior in the army of the lord
Warrior in the army
I'm a warrior in the army of the lord
Mighty good warrior in the army

Now I got a Mother in the promised land
Don't expect to stop until I shake her hand
When I get to heaven gonna sing and yell
Three tall angels gonna tone them bells

I'm a warrior in the army of the lord

I'm a mighty good warrior in the army of the lord
Warrior y'all in the army

I'm a soldier in the army of the Lord
In the army
Mighty good soldier in the army of the Lord
In the Army

If you don't believe that I've been redeemed
Follow me on down by the Jordon sea
My head got so wet with the midnight dew
I'm so glad that I'm a witness too

I'm a warrior in the army of the lord
Warrior yeah in the army
I'm a warrior in the army of the lord
Mighty good warrior in the army
I'm a soldier in the army of the Lord
I'm a soldier in the army
Soldier yeah in the army of the Lord
Mighty good soldier in the army
