1 Hark, how the watchmen cry!
Attend the trumpet’s sound;
Stand to your arms the foe is nigh,
The powers of hell surround.
Hark! how they cry,
Hark, hark! to the trumpet.
Stand to your arms, the foe is nigh—
Even now they’re here upon the battle ground.
2 Who bow to Christ’s command,
Your arms and hearts prepare,
The day of battle is at hand,
Go forth to glorious war. [Refrain]
3 His standard-bearer now,
To all the nations call:
To Jesus’ cross ye nations bow,
He bore the cross for all. [Refrain]
4 Go up with Christ your Head,
Your Leader’s footsteps see;
Follow your Captain and be led
To certain victory. [Refrain]
