Representative Text

1 Christ has called to service
Every youth today;
Hark! the host advances,
Join them in the way.
With a vision glorious,
Steps are quick and strong;
From the hills of glory
Christ commands the throng.

Hail! glorious army!
Be strong and true,
Laud, praise your captain,
Who leads you through.
Keep on recruiting,
Seek men everywhere,
Christ will surely save,
Give them crowns to wear.

2 Time for prayer most earnest,
You must have, or fail;
Go with trust and courage,
Satan’s host shall quail.
With the hope of triumph,
Onward press today;
Gird thy sacred powers,
There into the fray. [Refrain]

3 Heed ye every order,
Keep upon the line,
Grasp the sword of spirit,
Victory is thine.
Blessèd is the service,
Sweet the daily joy,
Bright the blessèd future,
While in Christ’s employ. [Refrain]
