Who'll Be a Soldier

Representative Text

1 Who'll be a soldier, Ready for the fight,
Battling for the Savior Ev'ry day and night?
Who'll be a soldier, With a shield and sword,
And a shining helmet, Fighting for the Lord?

Chorus:
I'll be a soldier, Ready for the fight!
Battling for the Savior ev'ry day and night,
I'll be a soldier, With a shield and sword,
And a shining helmet, Fighting for the Lord.

2 Who'll be a soldier, Willing to be there,
When the battle rages, And the armour wear?
"Shield of faith" uplifted, Sword in either hand,
Jesus is our Captain And He's with His band. [Chorus]

3 Who'll be a soldier, Brave to do or die
For our noble Captain, Who is ever nigh?
He is close beside us, In the night or day,
Happy when we follow Where He leads the way. [Chorus]

4 Who'll be a soldier, Who will win a crown?
Who will bear the banner--Never lay it down?
Who'll be a soldier, Willing brave and true,
Tho' but little children, Jesus calls for you. [Chorus]
