Representative Text

1 Fall into line brother, fall into line!
Hearken to me, to the message divine!
Jesus invites you to join in the fray,
Gives you assurance of vict’ry today.

Refrain:
Fall into line, soldiers, fall into line!
On to the battle, for Jesus shall win!
Fierce is the warfare with Satan today;
Arm for the conflict and march to the fray.

2 Fall into line, brother, fall into line!
See how the hosts of the foeman combine!
Join in the conflict and rush to the field,
Till we shall crush and compel them to yield. [Refrain]

3 Fall into line, brother, fall into line!
God is omnipotent and he shall win!
Only be true to thyself and the Lord,
And you shall share the eternal reward. [Refrain]
