A good soldier of Jesus Christ.@2 Timothy 2:3

Rex Neubert, in Telling Jesus (Hudson, North Carolina: Teachers’ Music Publishing Company, 1922), number 9.

Chad M. Elgar Belue, 1922 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Little soldiers of the King
Love our banner bright;
Let us strive to victory bring,
Clinging to the right.

Refrain

We are boldly marching on,
Little soldiers true;
Looking toward glad victory’s dawn,
Little soldiers true.

Little soldiers, faith our shield,
Dreading not the foe;
Valiant on the battlefield,
Since our strength we know.

Refrain

Little soldiers, all the day
Doing kindly deeds;
Weary not, tho’ long the way
That to glory leads.

Refrain

Little soldiers, trusting still
Our commander brave,
Trying e’er His will to do,
Helpless ones to save.

Refrain
