Representative Text

1 Ever true and ever faithful,
In His service I would be;
Loyal hearted, brave and valiant,
That He may depend on me.

Ever true and ever faithful,
This my heart’s desire today;
Ever true and ever faithful,
Ever ready to obey.

2 Lo! the call to arms has sounded,
And the battle-cry is heard;
Lo! the hosts of sin are shaken
By the strength of God’s own word. [Refrain]

3 May I never furl the standard
Of the mighty King of kings
Till the warfare shall be ended,
And the shout of triumph rings. [Refrain]

4 I will struggle bravely onward,
Till the days of strife are o’er;
Till I join the host victorious,
On the blessed Homeland shore. [Refrain]
