Representative Text

1 God is sending his truth o’er the world,
And his foes long so boastful must fall;
For his armies with banners unfurl’d
Boldly march to the word of his call.

We will sing, sign the pledge,
We will banish the rum-fiend from sight;
We will sign, sign the pledge,
And will battle for God and the right.

2 We will strike off the chains of the slave,
and the fallen will aid to arise;
And the demon we’ll scourge to his grave,
While our watchword ascends to the skies. [Chorus]

3 And the desert shall bloom as the rose,
When the Day of the Lord shall appear,
Bringing gladness to hearts crushed with woes,
And the dawn of the glory is here. [Chorus]
