Contented Soldier

L.M.

Wm. Walker

Refrain:

1.

I've listed in the holy war,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Content to suffer soldier's fare,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

2.

The banner o'er my head is love,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

I draw my rations from above,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

3.

I've fought through many a battle sore,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

And I must fight through many more,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

4.

I take my breastplate, sword, and shield,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

And boldly march into the field,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

5.

The world, the flesh, and Satan too,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Unite and strive what they can do;

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

6.

On thee, O Lord, I humbly call,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Uphold me or my soul must fall,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

7.

I've listed, and I mean to fight

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Till all my foes are put to flight;

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

8.

And when the victory I have won,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

I'll give the praise to God alone,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

9.

Come, fellow Christians, join with me,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Come, face the foe, and never flee,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

10.

The heavenly battle is begun,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Come, take the field, and win the crown,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

11.

With listing orders I have come;

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Come rich, come poor, come old or young,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

12.

Here's grace's bounty, Christ hath given,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

And glorious crowns laid up in heaven:

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

13.

Our General he is gone before.

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

And you may draw on grace's store.

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

14.

But, if you will not list and fight,

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

You'll sink into eternal night;

Till the warfare is over, hallelujah!

Crying amen, shout on till the warfare is over, hallelujah!
