List of Tracks & Programme Notes

1  O Happy Day ......................... Originally used in the 1970's by the Dutch composer's vocal group "Grace".  This song has become very popular since being published for songster brigades.
2  O Disclose Thy Lovely Face .... This melody was originally written for a Swedish translation of "Rock of Ages".  On being introduced in the UK, it was suggested that these words of Charles Wesley should be married to the tune, now called "Tyndal" after its composer.  The coupling has brought blessing to many.
3  Good Soldiers Never Look Back.. This track inspired the title for the recording.  It comes to us from Australia, and expresses the desire of the brigade, to be proud of its past, but look to the future.
4  Obedience ............................... The words of this song call us all to be disciples of Christ, but also demand a response from us to that call.
5  Bound For Canaan's Shore ........ Originally published in 1962, this song is a vigorous setting of an old favourite.
6  It Is Well With My Soul ........... This song owes its continued popularity to the merging of words and music.  It came out of tragedy, and never fails to move the soul.
7  Open Up My Heart  (*) .............  Another song from Scandinavia.  This time sung by a some of the young ladies of the brigade,  declaring a dedication to the call of Christ.
8  I Dare To Be Different ............... This lively song is fun to sing, and fun to listen to, encouraging Christians to stand for Christ.
9 I Am So Glad ...........................  Many different settings have been given to these popular words of testimony.  This arrangement brings out the simple joy of our experience.
10 I Heard The Voice ...................  Set in a simple gospel style. the message this song brings us is one of transformation.
11 This Little Babe ..................... Taken from Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols", this fast moving song is brilliant in its simplicity, and breathtaking in its excitement.
12  Green Hill ............................ These well known words have been set to music by Captain Len Ballantine.
13  Her Am I, My Lord! .............. The words of this song, mirror our own feelings of inadequacy and sinfulness, and then the realisation that God is still willing to take us, and use us, as we are.
14  Get On Board (*) ..................  Again from Scandinavia, this song has an energetic way of imploring us to get on that gospel train.
15  He Is My Shepherd ...............  This song links closely with others on the recording, in its message that, when we are at our lowest ebb, God is there to support and strengthen us.
16  Joyful, Joyful .......................   This German tune, known popularly as "Ode To Joy", or as the European Anthem, brings the recording to a triumphant conclusion.
17  Our Father ..........................   Provides the benediction to the recording.  It is a devotional setting of the Lord's Prayer, and offers efforts into His hands to bless them and use them as He wills.


(*) Tracks sung by the Sayahamba Vocal Ensemble.  This group is comprised of a number of the young ladies of the brigade, under the leadership of Susanna Hart.
