Representative Text

I’M a soldier bound for Glory,
I’m a soldier going home;
Come and hear me tell my story,
All who love the Saviour, come.

Refrain:
I love Jesus, hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do;
I love Jesus, he’s my Saviour,
Jesus smiles and loves me too.

2 I will tell you what induced me
In the glorious fight to start;
‘Twas the Saviour’s loving kindness
Overcame and won my heart.

3 When I first commenced my warfare
Many said I’d run away;
But they all have been deceived,
In the fight I am today.

4 I’m a wonder unto many,
God alone the change has wrought;
Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Hither by his help I’m brought.

5 When to death’s dark, swelling river,
Like a warrior I shall come,
Then I mean to shout salvation!
And go singing glory! home.
