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 host of sin,
With Christ for our Captain we're sure to win.
Come, all ye children, without delay,
Enlist in the army of the Lord today;
Oh, come then help us 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 today 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 we'll wave,
And some from the strongholds of sin we'll save. [Chorus]
