Representative Text

1 Hear you not the cry ‘long the battle line,
“The world, the world for Christ,”
All the ranks of sin ‘gainst His reign combine;
The world, the world for Christ.

Refrain:
“The world for Christ,” our battle cry,
The world for Christ;
We will fight and die
If need be, for our King on High;
The world, the world for Christ

2 Marching on, with faith in our Leader’s might;
The world, the world for Christ;
Standing true and firm, we shall win the fight;
The world, the world for Christ. [Refrain]

3 We shall know no fear, and we’ll ne’er retreat;
The world, the world for Christ;
Till as King of kings, we our Saviour greet;
The world, the world for Christ. [Refrain]

4 O, the blessed day, when o’er all the earth;
The world, the world for Christ;
Every tongue confess to the Saviour’s worth;
The world, the world for Christ.
