Full Text

1 The soldiers are gath’ring from near and from far,
The trumpets are sounding their call to the war;
And this is our slogan wherever we are:—
“The world, all the world for Jesus!”

All the wide world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
Sweep on victorious,
Conquer all glorious,
Take all the world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
Take all the wide, wide world for Jesus,
All the world!

2 God’s army is massing along the frontier;
Each soldier in battle a brave volunteer;
We’re charging the foe without doubt or a fear,
To take all the world for Jesus! [Refrain]

3 We’re marching along with a conquering host,
To follow our Captain, our glory, our boast;
Determined to win or to die at our post;—
The world, all the world for Jesus! [Refrain]
