1 Little soldiers of the King,
We’ll enlist today;
In the army of the Lord,
Promise to obey.

Refrain:
Little soldiers, all our best we gladly bring,
For truth and right we, too, will fight
In the army of the King.

2 Little soldiers, though so small,
Soon will larger grow;
Walking in the narrow way,
More of him we’ll know. [Refrain]

3 Little soldiers of the King
Turn us not aside;
Willingly his blessed Word
In our hearts we’ll hide. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
