1 A call comes ringing from the throne,
O Christian, do you hear?
It comes to all our Savior’s own,
Go, preach a Savior near.

Go forth, go forth, with armor on,
And crimson flag unfurled;
Obey the call, the kingly call,
Go forth and win the world.

2 A Savior near, dear souls to save,
Go tell it far and wide;
It was for this His life He gave,
The matchless Crucified. [Refrain]

3 Go forth a brave, united band,
All girded for the fray;
Stand firm until you take the land,
And thus the call obey. [Refrain]
