342. Oh, Christians leagued together

1 Oh, Christians leagued together,
To battle for the right,
Arise, and don your armor,
Put the foe to flight;
We’ve given our allegiance,
To serve without surcease,
The mighty Lord of armies
And gentle Prince of Peace.
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.

2 Then onward be the war cry,
And onward still, so long
As we have self to conquer,
Souls to cheer with song:
Let sound the martial music,
Ring out the bugle call,
To rally for the conflict
Our people one and all!
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.

3 We proudly bear as banner
A cross within the heart,
To show that we have chosen
Christ, the better part.
Then joy, and peace, and comfort
Shall blossom as a rose,
Until our earthly blessings
The worth of heav'n disclose.
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.
