Representative Text

1 We are youthful soldiers,
Marshalled for the Lord,
Waiting for his orders,
all of one accord!
Clad in holy armor,
We can dare and do,
For each heart is valiant
In this grand review.

Soldiers, soldiers,
We are youthful soldiers,
And we hope to conquer
In our Captain's name.

2 We are youthful soldiers,
Marching in the light,
And our souls are trusting
In Jehovah's might!
Onward! is our watch-word,
Victory our aim,
And we hope to conquer
In our Captain's name. [Refrain]

4 We are youthful soldiers,
Eager all to prove
By our faithful service
How his case we love!
For our King we rally
On this festal day,
Marshalled for his glory
In a bright array. [Refrain]
