Representative Text

1 In the battle’s din,
With the hosts of sin,
Will you bear His banner thru?
When the foe is strong,
When the strife is long,
Can the Master count on you?

Refrain:
Will you then be true?
Can He count on you?
In the cause of right,
Will you bravely fight?
Can He count,
Can He count on you?

2 When the fields await,
When the work is great,
When the laborers are few,
When the easy way,
Leads the crowd astray,
Can the Master count on you? [Refrain]

3 Should He call today,
Would you gladly say
Here am I Thy work to do?
Then thru good or ill
Will you do His will?
Can the Master count on you? [Refrain]
