Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

The Juniors' Battle Hymn

Hear the call for volunteers

Author: Emma Frances Barrows
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative 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.

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]
