Representative Text

1 Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And he, our Commander and Friend,
Will help us each one to be faithful,
And lead us safe on to the end;
Wherever the post of our duty
Let none of us falter nor fear;
Remember no danger can harm us
When Jesus our Saviour is near.

Refrain:
Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And he, our Commander and Friend,
Will help us each one to be faithful,
And lead us safe on to the end.

2 Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And promise to follow him still;
A place in the Sunday-school army
Today we are happy to fill;
Yes, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And proudly our colors we show;
Our watchword is RIGHT and PRESS ONWARD;
We dread not the field nor the foe. [Refrain]

3 Our pathway may sometimes be rugged,
Our marching may sometimes be long,
But gladly our footsteps shall ever
Keep time to the voice of our song;
And oh, when the warfare is over,
And Jesus our Saviour shall come,
How sweetly we’ll rest on his bosom,
In Eden, dear Eden, our home. [Refrain]
