1 Soldiers, true and faithful,
Hear the trumpets call;
‘Neath your Captain’s banner,
Range ye one and all.
Not against the Devil,
Not against the world,
Must the red-cross banner
Only be unfurled.

2 Subtle foes are lurking
Deep your hearts within,
There first wage the battle
With the power of sin.
O’er the sight and hearing,
Touch, and taste, and smell,
Let a watch, good Christians,
Guard those portals well.

3 Satan, through the senses,
Seeks your souls to slay,
Let no secret traitor,
Jesus’ cause betray.
If to lusts enticing
Ye betray your heart,
Can ye bid the Devil,
And the world depart?

4 By the signs upon you,
By Christ’s life within,
Close in deadly conflict
With each pleasant sin.
Jesus’ eye is on you,
Keep your solemn vow;
Then a crown immortal
Shall adorn your brow.
