78. A Call for Volunteers

1 There’s a call for volunteers,
Hear the cry!
See, the battle-clouds hang low,
In the sky!
Hark! the bugle, loud and clear,
Speaks to all, both far and near,
There’s a call, yes, a call for volunteers.

Refrain:
There’s a call for volunteers,
There’s a call for volunteers;
Marching with the sons of light,
Let us battle for the right,
There’s a call, a call for volunteers today;
There’s a call for volunteers,
There’s a call for volunteers;
Come and fill the ranks today,
To the battle front away!
There’s a call, there’s a call for volunteers.

2 There’s a call for volunteers,
Who will go?
Yonder, marching to the fray,
Comes the foe.
‘Tis a call to go and fight,
‘Gainst the wrong and for the right, [Refrain]

3 There’s a call for volunteers,
Brave and true;
Hark! Again, the clarion notes,
Call for you.
Now, the clash of arms is here,
Come, enlist, and do not fear,
There’s a call, yes, a call for volunteers. [Refrain]

4 There’s a call for volunteers,
Stand we must;
Till the pow’r of wrong is laid,
In the dust;
Now, your God and Country calls,
Strike the foe who now enthralls!
There’s a call, yes, a call for volunteers. [Refrain]
