1 There comes a call for warriors
Who’re not afraid to die,
Who in this service glorious
The pow’rs of hell defy;
No fond indulgence favoring,
Their all for Christ to give,
With courage never wavering
For Him alone to live.

Our Saviour following
With step unfaltering,
And love unaltering,
His praise we sing;
His banner over us,
In service glorious,
We’ll fight victorious
For Christ our King.

2 Oh, who, the Master following
Will dare go all the way,
To share His shame and sorrowing,
Without the camp today?
Oh, linger not in entering
This fight against the wrong,
Your love in Jesus centering,
Who lives to make you strong. [Refrain]

3 Your heart no longer hardening,
Against the Saviour’s love;
Oh, come and find the pardoning,
He offers from above;
From ev’ry sin now severing
Your will, your heart, your mind,
Henceforth in Him endeavoring
Your all in Him to find. [Refrain]

4 Then forward marching merrily,
Without a doubt or fear;
For in the battle verily,
Our Leader will be near;
And tho’ all hell outrageously
Assaults to drag us down,
We’ll fight the fight courageously,
And win the conqu’ror’s crown. [Refrain]
