Representative Text

1 Christian soldiers all, hear our Leader’s call;
Who will rally at the King’s command?
Firmly, steadily, on to victory,
See, advancing, “Our Endeavor Band.”

Forward! Soldiers all; hear our Leader’s call!
Onward! Onward, with the Sword and Shield!
Signals flashing bright, in the shining light,
Cheer us onward to the battle field.

2 Hear the trump of war sounding near and far,
Haste to conquer in Jehovah’s name;
To the promised land, with His mighty hand,
He will lead us with a loud acclaim. [Refrain]

3 On, our foes to brave on the world to save!
Armed with courage as the moments fly;
Shouts of triumph rise, rank to rank replies,
As with joy we wave our banners high! [Refrain]

4 When our labor’s done, and the victory won,
Then with Jesus we shall meet above:
Oh how sweet ’twill be there His face to see,
In the mansions of eternal love! [Refrain]
