Representative Text

1 Line up, line up for Jesus, go forward to the fight,
Against the pow’r of evil and for the cause of right.

Refrain:
Line up, line up for Jesus,
For Him a soldier be,
Yielding never,
Forward ever,
Marching on to victory,
Line up, line up for Jesus,
For Him a soldier be,
Till His flag be unfurled o’er the whole wide world;
Line up,
Line up,
Line up for Jesus.

2 Line up, line up for Jesus, no longer idle stand,
While precious souls are dying in sin on ev’ry hand. [Refrain]

3 Line up, line up for Jesus, oh waste no precious time
In drifting with the current of darkness, sin, and crime. [Refrain]

4 Line up, line up for Jesus, as one united band,
To spread the blessed gospel in ev’ry tribe and land. [Refrain]
