Representative Text

1. Farewell, vain world, I'm going home;
I am bound to die in the army.
My Savior smiles and bids me come,
I am bound to die in the army.
I am bound to live in the service of my Lord,
I am bound to die in the army.

2. Sweet angels beckon me away,
I am bound to die in the army.
To sing God's praise in endless day,
I am bound to die in the army.
I am bound to live in the service of my Lord,
I am bound to die in the army.
