Fall in line, fall in line

Representative Text

1 Fall in line, fall inline! Hear the battle-slogan ring!
See the flag that’s unfurled o’er the campground of the King!
Lo, a host gath’ring there from the south and from the north,
From the east and the west, God’s great army marching forth.

Refrain:
Fall in line, fall in line! Lo, the conflict has begun!
Let’s away to the fray on the field that must be won;
Fall in line, one and all, in His name to dare and do!
There are souls to be saved! Ev’ry soldier must be true!

2 Fall in line, fall inline! Only cowards stand and wait.
Captive souls cry for help—O their sad and bitter fate!
There’s no time to be lost—join the rescue-ranks today—
Save a soul while you can! be a hero in the fray! [Refrain]

3 Fall in line, fall inline! Jesus Christ is on ahead.
“Follow me!” is His cry “Unto victory be led!”
O be strong in the strength of God of Battles now;
“We will win tho’ we die!” be each loyal soldier’s vow. [Refrain]
