Representative Text

1 I’m a little soldier,
With a sword and shield,
Fighting for my Master,
Never will I yield.
I am trusting in Him,
Ev’ry passing day,
Knowing He will lead me
In the perfect way.

Chorus:
I’m a little soldier,
With a sword and shield,
Fighting for my Master,
Never will I yield.
I am trusting in Him,
Ev’ry passing day,
Knowing He will lead me
In the perfect way.

2 I’m a little soldier
Of the heav’nly King,
Ever in His praises
I can speak and sing.
Jesus came to save me,—
Left His home above,
So I tell the story
Of His wondrous love. [Chorus]

3 I’m a little Christian,
Jesus has my heart,
And I know that never
From Him I’ll depart.
He will keep me ever
Safe beneath His care,
Then at last He’ll take me
To His mansion fair. [Chorus]
