Soldiers Of The Sunday School Army


Soldiers of th’ Sunday-school army,
Stand equipped in bright array!
God is calling forth the loyal
To protect his holy day.

Chorus:
Show your weapons boldly, soldiers,
Make God’s word your trusted sword;
While he trumpets, “keep my Sabbaths!”
Shout ye all, “We will, dear Lord!”

Soldiers of th’ Sunday-school army,
See the ranks of sin draw near,
Striving to annul God’s precepts,
And destroy his day, so dear! [Chorus]

Soldiers of th’ Sunday-school army,
Rear ye not the foe’s alarm;
Though a host encamp against you,
You may shield God’s day from harm. [Chorus]

Soldiers of th’ Sunday-school army,
Rouse ye in this time of need;
Hold aloft your Lord’s commandments,
Keep his day in truth and deed. [Chorus]
