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.

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]
