Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 In these days when truth and error
Battle fiercely for the soul,
We should show our colors bravely:
Form in line and call the roll!
Who is in God’s mighty army?
Cal the roll, call the roll!
Sound the signal; form in column:
Call the roll, call the roll!
2 In these days none can be neutral,
Each will yield to some control;
Zion needs to know her soldiers—
Halt the ranks, and call the roll! [Refrain]
3 Sound the bugle for the muster!
Summon every faithful soul!
Mighty is the coming conflict;
Ere it opens, call the roll! [Refrain]
4 On the march some souls have fallen,
And have crossed beyond the goal;
Some were faithless and deserted,
Who are left? now call the roll! [Refrain]
5 Promptly answer to the roll call,
Ye, His faithful soldiers all;
Underneath His conquering banner
Rally now, and call the roll! [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #10056
