Cold Water Army Lyrics

Lyrics by Eva Munson Smith 
Music by Eva Munson Smith 
Temperance Movement (1904)

Come children, come, join our cold water Band! 
Merrily sing and for the right stand! 
None are so happy as they who do right;

Come children, come, in this work now unite. 
None are so happy as they who do right! 
Come, children, come, in this grand work unite. 
None are so blest as the workers we see! 
Come, children, come, join the great jubilee!

God in His word says the drunkard must go. 
Down to the depths of that dark world of woe. 
Oh let us help him his time to reclaim

It was for this that our dear Savior came. 
None are so happy as they who do right! 
Come, children, come, in this grand work unite. 
None are so blest as the workers we see! 
Come, children, come, join the great jubilee!

Then let us all join the cold water Band! 
Work for the world, and that dark world of woe. 
None are as happy as mortals who win;

Sinners enthralled in the meshes of sin. 
None are so happy as they who do right! 
Come, children, come, in this grand work unite. 
None are so blest as the workers we see! 
Come, children, come, join the great jubilee!
