Representative Text

1 Hear ye the call, hear ye the call,
Sounding like a rally cry to one and all,
Hear and obey, hear and obey,
Come and join the legions of our Lord today.

Wide fields are waiting
Choose Thy place today,
Cease all debating,
Idling and delay;
Serve the Lord with gladness,
Toil for Him with praise,
His love shall crown thy days.

2 Hear ye the call, hear ye the call,
Never shall the Saviour’s word unheeded fall,
Answer His voice, answer His voice,
Only in His service let thy heart rejoice. [Refrain]

3 Hear ye the call, hear ye the call,
Rally at the summons that is sent to all,
Haste into line, haste into line,
Work with faith unceasing for the King divine. [Refrain]
