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
