Full Text

1 Go call ye the children, we want them all
To join in our army, both great and small;
We're fighting to conquer the hosts of sin,
With Christ for our Captain, we're sure to win.

Chorus:
Come, all ye children, without delay,
Enlist in the army of the Lord to-day,
Oh, come then, helpless, with all your might,
To conquer evil by doing right.

2 There's love from our Captain to children dear;
Then why not the call to his army hear?
Be ready to-day to be mustered in
And take a firm stand as a foe of sin. [Chorus]

3 By day and by night we will battle wrong,
And follow our Leader with shout and song.
Then come, and his banner of love will wave,
And some from the strongholds of sin we'll save. [Chorus]
