Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
