Full Text

1 Hear the call for volunteers,
In the army of the Lord,
Youthful soldiers are enlisting now for life.
Lo! a throng of loyal hearts
Beat responsive to the word,
Christ, our Captain, leading onward in the strife.

Chorus:
Tramp, tramp, tramp, our League is marching.
See the band of earnest youth;
And beneath our banner bright,
We may scatter gleams of light;
Shine for Christ, and spread the knowledge of the truth.

2 We must keep the life each day
Free from sin, and faithful prove;
Speak the words of truth, and do the kindly deed,
Conquer self, and every thought,
Purely ruled by Christian love,
Seeking help of Christ, to meet our daily need. [Chorus]
