Representative Text

1. There’s a battle to be fought,
A vict’ry to be gained;
There’s a country to be saved,
A host from sin reclaimed.

Yes, there’s something to be done! Something to be done!
Let us then no longer waste the precious moments as they fly!
Oh, there’s something to be done! There’s something to be done!
There are precious souls to save, there’s something to be done!

2. There’s an enemy abroad,
So subtle and so strong,
That the conflict must be fierce,
The struggle must be long. [Refrain]

3. We’re recruiting for the ranks,
For years and years to come,
That our number may not fail
Ere triumph shall be won. [Refrain]
