Full Text

1 When the call rings out thro’ the whole wide land,
Will you follow in His way?
Pledging heart and hand for His cause to stand,
Ready ever to obey?

Refrain:
When the call rings out will you be ready?
When the call rings out will you be true?
Glad to take your part with a willing heart,
Will you be ready when He calls for You?

2 When the call rings out will you take your place
With the workers side by side?
Going forth each day in a joyful way,
Where the Lord himself doth guide? [Refrain]

3 When the call rings out will you answer “yes,”
To the loving heav’nly Friend?
In his footsteps tread who is just ahead,
Till you reach your journey’s end?
