Full Text

1. Farewell, vain world, I'm going home; I am bound to die in the army. My Savior smiles and bids me come, I am bound to die in the army. I am bound to live in the service of my Lord, I am bound to die in the army. 2. Sweet angels beckon me away, I am bound to die in the army. To sing God's praise in endless day, I am bound to die in the army. I am bound to live in the service of my Lord, I am bound to die in the army.
