Representative Text

1 Little soldiers in the field,
Fighting for the Lord;
Christ, our captain and our shield,
Guards us with His word.

Little friends, come along,
Join our youthful band;
We are marching, marching on
T’ward the happy land.

2 See the glorious banner wave,
Love, our motto true;
All our soldiers, good and brave,
Keep it full in view. [Refrain]

3 Whosoever will may come
And go with us now;
Christ, our captain, shelters all
In the narrow way. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll reach the shining land,
See our Savior’s face;
For each one of our great band
He’s prepared a place. [Refrain]
