"THE BUGLE CALL"

Verse One:
Rouse from your slumbers! Day is at hand;
Glory of morning breaks over all the land.
God's hosts are marching, banners unfurled,
Clear sounds the bugle call
Around the world!

Chorus One:
Gird on your armor! Stay not behind!
Rise to the challenge,
Now is the time!
God goes before you; forth to the fray!
Rise at the bugle call and march to day!
[March today!]

Verse Two:
Longhoped and prayed for Day of our Lord,
When Satan's empire falls
By the Spirit's sword!
God's hosts will conquer; power from Above
Strengthens the soldiers of the Lord of Love.

Chorus Two:
Gird on your armor! Stay not behind!
Rise to the challenge, now is the time!
God goes before you; forth to the fray!
Rise at the bugle call and march today!
[March today!]

Verse Three:
Souls long in bondage sigh for release;
Hearts sore and troubled long
Cry for rest and peace.
God's hosts advancing loudly proclaim
Hope of Salvation in the Savior's name.

[Repeat Chorus Two]

[March today!]

Verse Four:
Shrink not from danger! Be not dismayed!
Jesus, your Leader brave,
Calls to you for aid.
Great is the glory, rich the reward,
Promised the soldiers true of Christ the Lord!

[Repeat Chorus Two]
