 Isaiah 6:8
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."

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 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
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 volunteer?

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
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 volunteer?

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
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 volunteer?
