When You Enlist (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from When You Enlist The chimes in the church tower are ringing. The seats, save a group directly in front of the pulpit, are already filled. The air is fragrant With the perfume of lovely ﬂowers. There are palms on either side of the great organ. The bells seem to be singing the very words of the last lines of the hymn, O God, to us may grace be given to follow in their train. The great organ joins a glorious and triumphant Amen then plays softly While two doors open and men and women, boys and girls enter and quietly take the vacant seats. Today, amidst the beauty of the ﬂowers, the sweetness of the music, the friendliness of all the people, they Will unite With the church, they Will join the noble army of those Who through the ages have climbed the steep ascent of heaven through peril, toil and pain. While the organ sounds a challenge or plays a hymn of gratitude and hope, all over America the church Will wel come With joy those Who have come to help in its great battle With selfishness With sin.
