1 There’s a shout in the camp: “Keep the fires brightly burning
All the night long,”
That the lost may return to the fold of the Shepherd
From paths of wrong.

Refrain:
There’s a shout in the camp, Hallelujah!
Glory to God!
There’s an echo in heav’n, Hallelujah!
Glory to God!

2 There’s a shout in the camp for vict’ry is coming
O’er Satan’s pow’r;
Thro’ the word of the Lord we the battle are gaining
This very hour. [Refrain]

3 There’s a shout in the camp over sinners returning
Home to the fold,
From the byway of sin with its burden of sorrow
To joy untold. [Refrain]

4 There’s a shout in the camp, ‘tis a glad “hallelujah!
Praise ye the Lord;”
All who trust in his name shall receive His salvation,
‘Tis God’s own word. [Refrain]
