Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Recruiting Hymn

Christ is set on Zion's hill

Published in 34 hymnals

Full Text

1 Christ is set on Zion's hill,
He receiveth sinners still;
Who will serve this blessed King,
Come enlist and with me sing.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

2 I by faith enlisted am,
In the service of the Lamb;
Present pay I now receive,
Future happiness he'll give.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

3 Zion's King my Captain is,
Conquest I shall never miss,
Let the fiends of hell engage,
Fret and foam, and roar and rage.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

4 Let the world their forces join,
With the fiends of hell combine;
Greater is my King than they,
Through him I shall win the day.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

5 Wicked men I scorn to fear,
Thought thy persecute me here;
True, they may the body kill,
But my King's on Zion's hill.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

6 What a Captain have I got;
Is not mine a happy lot:
Hear, ye worldlings! hear my song,
This, the language of my tongue.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

7 When this life's short space is o'er,
I shall live to die no more;
therefore will I take the sword,
Fight for Jesus Christ my Lord.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

8 Come ye worldlings, come enlist,
'Tis the voice of Jesus Christ;
Whosoever will, may come,
Jesus Christ refuseth none.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

9 Jesus is my Captain's name,
Now as yesterday the same;
In his name I notice give,
All who come he will receive.
I his soldier sure shall be,
Happy in eternity.

10 Be persuaded, take his pay,
All your sins he'll wash away;
Now in Jesu's name believe,
Future happiness he'll give;
Yes in heaven you sure shall be,
Praising God eternally.
