1 A call for loyal soldiers
Comes to one and all;
Soldiers for the conflict,
Will you heed the call!
Will you answer quickly,
With a ready cheer,
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

A volunteer for Jesus,
A soldier true!
Others have enlisted,
Why not you?
Jesus is the Captain,
We will never fear;
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

2 Yes, Jesus calls for soldiers,
Who are filled with pow'r,
Soldiers who will serve Him
Ev'ry day and hour;
he will not forsake you,
He is ever near;
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer? [Chorus]

3 He calls you for He loves you
With a heart most kind,
He whose heart was broken,
Broken for mankind;
Now, just now He calls you,
Calls in accents clear,
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer? [Chorus]

4 And when the war is over,
And the vict'ry won,
When the true and faithful
Gather one by one,
He will crown with glory
All who there appear;
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer? [Chorus]
