Church of God, whose conquering banners

Full Text

1 Church of God, whose conquering banners,
Float along the glorious years,
Gath'ring harvest rich and golden,
Sown in poverty and tears,
Onward press, the cross is bending
Far toward the morning skies,
Speedy dawn of light portending:
Church of God awake! arise!

Church of God, awake! arise!
Christ, your Head and Master, cries,
Send the gospel's joyful sound
Unto earth's remotest bound.

2 In your costly temples praying,
"Let thy kingdom come, we pray."
Are but words of idle meaning
If with these we turn away.
Boundless wealth to you is given
From His hand who owns it all,
And His eye beholds in heaven
What ye render back for all. [Refrain]

3 Shake the earth and rend the heaven,
Wake thy sleeping children, Lord,
Till the measure full and even
Has been rendered at Thy word.
Then from out her chrism of sorrow
Shall the earth redeemed arise,
And the fair eternal morrow
Dawn with opal tinted skies. [Refrain]
