Representative Text

1 At our post, as valiant soldiers,
Bearing each our sword and shield;
This our watchword now and ever:
We will die, but never yield.

At our post, no step must falter,
Let us stand with one accord,
Beating back the wary tempter,
In the name of Christ the Lord.

2 At our post, no step must falter,
At our post, no time to sleep;
We must guard the royal standard,
Every eye a watch must keep. [Refrain]

3 At our post in active duty
Whensoe’er the Lord shall call;
At our post and faithful servants
May He find us one and all. [Refrain]
