Lyrics

We’re a youthful soldier band,
Fighting at our king’s command,
Fighting to reclaim the world
From the curse of sin.
Come and join our ranks today,
And no longer stay away,
He will help you on the way,
To the throne of God.
We’re a youthful soldier band,
Fighting at our king’s command,
Fighting to reclaim the world
From the curse of sin.

Come away, leave sinful lust,
And in Jesus put your trust;
He will help you conquer sin,
Praise His holy name.
Then we’ll rally at His call,
Do His bidding one and all,
Ne’er give up until we fall,
In the glorious fray.
Come away, leave sinful lust,
And in Jesus put your trust;
He will help you conquer sin,
Praise His holy name.
