Representative 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.
