Representative Text

1 In the ranks so true there's a place for you,
The Captain is calling;
Then enlist today, serve Him while you may,
The Captain calls for you.

Refrain:
For comrades loyal-hearted ever,
The Captain is calling,
O come with glad endeavor
The Captain calls for you.
Then enlist beneath His standard royal,
Then be ready both to dare and do,
The Captain is calling
He calls for you.

2 To a conflict long 'gainst a foe so strong,
The Captain is calling;
And a comrade brave, come the loxt to save,
The Captain calls for you. [Refrain]

3 To a rich reward by His wond'rous word,
The Captain is calling;
Win a crown of life when shall end earth's strife,
The Captain calls for you. [Refrain]
