1. The world must be taken for the Lord;
Onward, soldiers, and arm ye for the fight.
In His name now watch and fight and pray,
Till all foes fear and tremble at the sight.
Ever onward, Christian soldier,
The world must be taken for the Lord,
Ever onward be your watchword,
The world must be taken for the Lord.
2. The world must be taken for the Lord;
And if faithful we know that we shall win.
Each day there’s a shout along the line
As we capture some citadel of sin. [Refrain]
3. The world must be taken for the Lord;
Final vict’ry is nearer ev’ry day.
The past holds no record of a time
When so many as now the Lord obey. [Refrain]
4. The world must be taken for the Lord;
Ev’ry nation and land shall yet be won.
His banner shall wave o’er all the world,
For our God with His army marches on. [Refrain]
