Words by Frances R. Havergal
Music by C. Luise Reichardt

Exodus 32:26
"Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said,
Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me.
And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him."

          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 call of mercy,

            Chorus
            By Thy grace divine,
            We are on the Lord's side,
            Savior, we are Thine.

          Not for weight of glory, Not for crown and palm,
          Enter we the army, Raise the warrior palm;
          But for Love that claimeth, Lives for who He died:
          He whom Jesus nameth, Must be on His side,
          By Thy love constraining,

            Chorus
            By Thy grace divine,
            We are on the Lord's side,
            Savior, we are Thine.

          Jesus, Thou hast bought us, Not with gold or gem,
          But with Thine own life blood, For Thy diadem;
          With Thy blessing filling, Each who comes to Thee,
          Thou hast made us willing, Thou hast made us free,
          By Thy grand redemption,

            Chorus
            By Thy grace divine,
            We are on the Lord's side,
            Savior, we are Thine.

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

            Chorus
            By Thy grace divine,
            We are on the Lord's side, Savior, we are Thine.
