1 The bugle calls for warriors
To battle for the King,
But I will need no armor bright
If a cheerful song I sing.

Can I but ease one heavy burden,
If to a sinful soul I bring
One little word of cheer, I have won a fight
In the battle for the King.

2 If I can carry sunshine
Where darkest shadows lurk,
I’ve captured a redoubt of sin,
And advanced the Kingdom’s work. [Refrain]

3 Gird me with loving kindness,
My sword, His precious Word,
Then in the fray I’ll victor be,
In the battle for the Lord. [Refrain]
