Representative Text

GOD’S trumpet is sounding: To arms! is the call;
More warriors are wanted to help on the war;
My King’s in the battle, he’s calling for me,
A salvation soldier for Jesus I’ll be.

Refrain:
Stand like the brave! Stand like the brave!
Stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe!

2 On land and on water my colours I’ll show,
Through ten thousand battles with Jesus I’ll go,
In danger I’m certain he’ll take care of me,
His blood and fire soldier for ever I’ll be.

3 I’ll fight to the last with the Lord’s sword and shield,
And count it an honour to die in the field;
In death and the grave there is victory for me,
A salvation soldier in Glory I’ll be.

4 The war will go on till the world is possessed,
The Salvation Army Jehovah has blessèd;
More heroes of faith on the roll we shall see;
The Salvation Army’s the Army for me.
