1 Hold up His standard, loyal and true,
Fond eyes are ever looking on you.
Praying our Savior that you may be,
O’er wrong triumphant brave, strong and free.
Hold up the standard, let it wave;
Hold up the standard, soldiers brave;
Forward to battle, let the watchword ring,
Hold up the standard of the King.
2 Hold up His standard, true to your King,
Whate’er of conflict each day may bring;
Lower it never, great though the cost,
Lest some who trust you, by this be lost. [Refrain]
3 Hold up His standard, never alone
Liveth or dieth lowliest one;
Some weaker brother, leaning on you,
Will be for heav’n won, if you are true. [Refrain]Source: United Praise: for use in Sunday Schools, Young People's Societies and other Church Services #102
