As a volunteer Lyrics

A call for loyal soldiers
Comes to one and all;
Soldiers for the conflict,
Will you heed the call?
Will you answer quickly,
With a ready cheer,
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

Refrain

A volunteer for Jesus,
A soldier true!
Others have enlisted,
Why not you?
Jesus is the Captain,
We will never fear,
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

Yes, Jesus calls for soldiers
Who are filled with pow'r,
Soldiers who will serve Him
Ev'ry day and hour;
He will not forsake you,
He is ever near;
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

Refrain

He calls you, for He loves you
With a heart most kind,
He whose heart was broken,
Broken for mankind;
Now, just now, He calls you,
Calls in accents clear,
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

Refrain

And when the war is over,
And the vict'ry won,
When the true and faithful
Gather one by one,
He will crown with glory
All who there appear;
Will you be enlisted
As a volunteer?

Refrain
