Representative Text

1 Firmly stand for the Master,
Bravely stand for the right;
His banner o’er thee, His cross before thee,
Strong in His pow’r and might.

Firmly stand, bravely stand,
In the strength of Christ the Savior;
Loyal and true, His bidding do;
Nobly stand for the truth and right.

2 Tho’ thy heart may be heavy,
And life burdened with care,
Jesus is near thee, His grace will cheer thee,
For He will hear thy prayer. [Refrain]

3 With His Word for thy armor,
And His love for thy shield,
With Him abiding, in Him confiding,
Ne’er to temptation yield. [Refrain]

4 In the midst of the conflict,
Heed His royal command;
Faltering never, loyal forever,
For the Redeemer stand. [Refrain]
