1 Ho, my comrades, see the signal, waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh.
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to Heaven, “By Thy grace we will.”
2 See the mighty host advancing, Satan leading on;
Mighty ones around us falling, courage almost gone! [Refrain]
3 See the glorious banner waving! Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe. [Refrain]
4 Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near;
Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer! [Refrain]
