Representative 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!”

Refrain:
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]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill.
