Representative Text

1 I’m a soldier bound for glory,
I’m a soldier marching on,
Come and hear me tell my story,
All who long in sin have gone.

Hallelujah, bound for glory,
Saved thro’ Jesus blood I stand;
Saved for service, saved for Heaven,
Sweetly saved in Beulah-land.

2 Now I’ll tell you what induced me
For the better world to start;
‘Twas the Savior’s loving-kindness
Overcame and won my heart. [Refrain]

3 It was early in the morning,
Just before the break of day,
That the angel came from glory,
And he rolled the stone away. [Refrain]

4 When I first with Christ enlisted,
Many said I’d turn again;
But I thro’ each day resisted,
In the ranks I still remain. [Refrain]

5 Many say I am too noisy,
But I know the reason why;
If they only felt the glory,
They would shout as well as I! [Refrain]

6 Some say that John the Baptist
Was nothing but a Jew,
But the Bible plainly tells me
That he had salvation too. [Refrain]
