Representative Text

1 The world must be taken for Jesus,
Come, enter His army today;
There’s need of the true-hearted soldiers,
For mighty is Satan’s array.

Refrain:
Enlist! enlist!
Enlist in His army today;
The world must be taken for Jesus,
Enlist in His army today.

2 The world must be taken for Jesus,
O hasten and fall into line;
Though mighty the foe, we shall conquer,
Led on by the Captain divine. [Refrain]

3 The world must be taken for Jesus,
The strongholds of Satan must yield;
Go forward with courage unfailing,
And never retreat from the field. [Refrain]
