Representative Text

1 Charge and encourage them, bid them go forward;
See, the King rides in the midst of His host;
All His true soldiers fight under a standard
That never was lowered and cannot be lost.

Refrain:
Forward, follow the standard;
Forward, Christ leads the lost;
Forward, follow the standard
That never was lowered and cannot be lost.

2 Charge and encourage them, cheer the faint-hearted;
Say to the fearful, Be strong for the fight—
Strong with the strength that is perfect in weakness,
And clad by the King in His armor of light. [Refrain]

3 Charge and encourage them; none shall be weary,
None shall be downcast or faint any more;
Only each heart must beat true to the Captain,
Whom all the great armies of heaven adore. [Refrain]

4 Fair are the mansions just over the river,
Bright are the crowns and transcendent their worth;
Sweetest of all the near smile of the Master;
O charge and encourage them, bid them go forth. [Refrain]
