1 God’s trumpet is sounding, “To arms!” is the call,
More warriors are wanted to help on the war;
My King’s in the battle, He’s calling for me,
A salvation soldier for Jesus I’ll be.
2 On land and on water my colors I’ll show,
Through ten thousand battles with Jesus I’ll go;
In danger I’m certain He’ll take care of me,
His blood-and-fire soldier forever I’ll be.
3 When foes persecute me I’ll not be dismayed—
Sin, death, hell, and fiends shall not make me afraid;
From fearing and doubting I’m fully set free,
A salvation soldier for God I will be.
4 I’ll fight to the last with the Lord’s sword and shield,
And count it an honor to die in the field;
In death and the grave there is vict’ry for me,
A salvation soldier in glory I’ll be.
