Well I wanta be a Christian soldier
In the army of our Lord
I'm gonna tell the love of Jesus
Till my life down here is o'er
I'm gonna tell the world he died for me
Tell em how he died in shame
Yes I wanta be a Christian soldier
And fight in my Savior's name

I love my Savior
He loves me too
I'll be His soldier
Till my life's work is through

Well I wanta March through the valleys
Then I wanta March up the hill
And I wanta sing about the love of God
And do his blessed will
Oh, I wanta drink from the fountain
Be baptised in his love
And I wanta be there when the roll is called
On the home coming day above
