Representative Text

1 The soldiers are gath’ring from near and from far,
The trumpets are sounding their call to the way,
And this is our slogan, wherever we are:-
“The world, all the world for Jesus!”

Our Captain is calling, is calling to arms,
Our Captain is calling;
Our aid we will lend him,
Our swords shall defend him;
We’ll follow his banner with shouts and hosannas;
We’ll sweep on victorious,
We’ll conquer all glorious,
And take all the world, and take all the world,
And take all the world for Jesus.

2 God’s army is massing along the frontier;
Each soldier in battle a brave volunteer;
We’re charging the foe without shadow of fear,
To take all the world for Jesus! [Chorus]

3 We’re marching along with a conquering host,
To follow our Jesus, our glory, our boast;
Determined to win or to die at our post;
The world, all the world for Jesus! [Chorus]
