1 Will you join our ranks that are marching on
‘Neath the banner of our God?
Will you seek the land where the Lord has gone?
Will you walk in the path He trod?

Refrain:
Will you join our ranks?
Will you join our ranks?
Will you cast the world, the world away?
Will you have the joy nothing can destroy?
Will you join our ranks today?

2 Will you join our ranks of the saved today?
Will you make the Lord your choice?
Will you have the peace none can take away,
And in His blessed love rejoice? [Refrain]

3 Will you join our ranks of the white-robed throng,
Where the Savior reigns as King?
Will the glad “new song” unto you belong,
Will you with His dear angels sing? [Refrain]
