Soldiers Bound For Canaans Land


Soldiers, bound for Canaan’s land,
Fall in, fall in!
Hear our Captain’s plain command,
Fall in, fall in!
Gird your armor tried and true,
Bear his banner, still in view;
Lowly cross he bore for you,
Fall in, fall in!

Soldiers, who would conquer now,
Fall in, fall in!
Weary form and furrowed brow,
Fall in, fall in!
‘Gainst the mighty hosts of wrong
Raise your voices clear and strong;
Angels sing no sweeter song,
Fall in, fall in!

Soldiers, saved by Jesus’ love,
Fall in, fall in!
Prince of peace, he rules above,
When your battles all are told,
Victor’s palms your hands shall hold
While you walk the streets of gold,
Fall in, fall in!
