1. Ho! my comrades, see the signal
Jesus waves on high;
Satan’s battlements are reeling;
Hear our Captain’s cry.

Storm the fort! For I am leading!
I have shown you how!
Shout the answer back to Heaven,
We are ready now!

2. See! the lofty walls are frowning,
Held by Satan’s power;
Sin enshrouds the world in darkness;
Now’s the storming hour. [Refrain]

3. See! the prophets now are showing
How the fort must fall;
There is no such thing as failing;
Shout, my comrades all. [Refrain]

4. Fierce and long the siege has lasted,
But the end is near;
Onward leads our great commander;
Cheer, my comrades, cheer! [Refrain]
