Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.

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]
