Representative Text

Chorus:
We'll end this warfare,
Down by the river;
We'll end this warfare,
Down by the river side.

1 Hark! listen to the trumpeters,
Down by the river;
They call for valiant volunteers,
Down by the river side.
[Chorus]

2 See Gideon marching out to fight;
He had no weapon but a light.
[Chorus]

3 He took his pitcher and a lamp,
And stormed with ease the Midean camp.
[Chorus]

4 This war is all my soul's delight:
I love the thickest of the fight.
[Chorus]

5 The hottest fight is just begun;
And who will stand and never run.
[Chorus]

6 We want no cowards in our band;
We call for full-salvation men.
[Chorus]

7 This day my soul has caught new fire;
I feel that heaven is drawing nigher.
[Chorus]

8 Farewell, vain world, I'm going home;
My Saviour smiles and bids me come.
[Chorus]
