1 Calling, a voice from heaven
Is calling unto you today;
“Come now, the Saviour needs you,
Come over on His side to stay.”

O come over on the Lord’s side
And show your colors for the King;
Ever helpful, ever hopeful,
Then others to His side you’ll bring;
Ever serving Him, then vict’ry,
Will be the song you’ll gladly sing;
Take a stand today, enter in the fray,
On the side of your Lord and King.

2 Jesus, our mighty Captain,
Is ever with us in the fray;
Stay not but heed His message,
Come over on His side today. [Refrain]

3 Forward His church is marching,
A host of follow’rs brave and strong;
Gladly, we blend our voices,
While heaven bends to join the song. [Refrain]
