Full Text

1 Comrade with comrade united,
Held by one bond of love,
All to one cause we are plighted,
Christ, and his kingdom above.

Refrain:
Shoulder to shoulder, heart’s growing stronger and bolder,
Marching together, one in communion and sweet accord;
Shoulder to shoulder, youth with the wiser and older,
Comrades in hope and in faith, comrades in service for Christ our Lord.

2 Clasping the hand of a neighbor,
Meeting a friendly smile,
Lighten the hardest of labor,
Shorten the weariest mile. [Refrain]

3 Only one banner waves o’er us,
Only one sign we know;
So with that standard before us,
Onward and upward we go. [Refrain]
