1 We are little volunteers for Jesus,
In His army here, are we;
Doing as our Captain orders,
Whatsoever that may be.

Refrain:
Little volunteers for Jesus,
Fighting for our blessed Lord;
Knowing that when life is over,
We shall have a great reward.
Little volunteers for Jesus,
Fighting for our blessed Lord,
Knowing that when life is over,
We shall have a great reward.

2 We are little volunteers for Jesus,
Willingly we serve our King;
Trustingly we do His bidding,
Joyfully for Him we sing. [Refrain]

3 We are little volunteers for Jesus,
Fighting ev’ry form of sin;
He in ev’ry battle helps us,
That we may the vict’ry win. [Refrain]

4 We are little volunteers for Jesus,
And He is our Captain brave;
We have learned to dearly love Him,
And for us His life He gave. [Refrain]
