While in the army I remain

Representative Text

1 While in the army I remain,
I'll speak the truth and bear the blame,
And when on board the ship I am,
I'll sing my Savior's praise the same.
And when on board the ship I am,
I'll sing my Savior's praise the same.

2 Oh, if your captain calls for you,
Put on your armor bold and true,
Put forth your strength, put forth your rod,
Fight for your country and your God.
Put forth your strength, put forth your rod,
Fight for your country and your God.
