1 I've listed in the holy war,
Content to suffer soldier's fare,

2 The banner o'er my head is love,
I draw my rations from above,

3 I've fought through many a battle sore,
And I must fight through many more,

4 I take my breastplate, sword, and shield,
And boldly march into the field,

5 The world, the flesh, and Satan too,
Unite and strive what they can do;

6 On thee, O Lord, I humbly call,
Uphold me or my soul must fall,

7 I've listed, and I mean to fight
Till all my foes are put to flight;

8 And when the victory I have won,
I'll give the praise to God alone,

9 Come, fellow Christians, join with me,
Come, face the foe, and never flee,

10 The heavenly battle is begun,
Come, take the field, and win the crown,

11 With listing orders I have come;
Come rich, come poor, come old or young,

12 Here's grace's bounty, Christ hath given,
And glorious crowns laid up in heaven:

13 Our General he is gone before.

And you may draw on grace's store.

14 But, if you will not list and fight,
You'll sink into eternal night;

The Southern Harmony, 1835
