Representative Text

TO the war! to the war! loud and long sounds the cry;
To the war! every soldier who fears not to die;
See the millions who’re drifting to Hell’s endless woe,
O who in the name of Jehovah will go?

Refrain:
Fighting on, fighting on;
Fighting on, fighting on;
With the blood and fire
We will never tire,
We’ll fight until the Master calls.

2 To the war! to the war! who’ll the war cry obey?
‘Tis the great God who calls you to fight while ‘tis day;
Though the battle be fierce, and though mighty the foe,
The Salvation Army to victory must go.

3 To the war! to the war! louder rings out the cry;
Who’ll enlist in this Army all Hell to defy?
All the armour of Heaven our God will bestow,
O who in the might of Jehovah will go?

4 To the war! to the war! every man to his post;
Go, care for the dying; go, seek for the lost;
Hark! converts are singing, their bright faces glow,
As they joyfully shout: To the war we will go!
