Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 In the name of Christ fling your banners out,
Let them fly, let them fly;
All ye valiant ones, let your rallying shout
Rend the sky, rend the sky,
Now we see the brightness of his Word,
And we hail the rising dawn,
Now Jehovah takes his conqu'ring sword,
And his cause goes marching on.

In the name of Christ fling your banners out,
Let them fly, let them fly;
Lift, ye valiant ones, your rallying shout
To do or die;
In the name of Christ let them fly,
In the name of Christ let them fly;
O let your banners fly,
Let your banners fly.

2 That the tidings blest may be borne abroad,
Give your hand, give your hand,
That your place be filled in the ranks of God,
Take your stand, take your stand,
And no ill thy soul unmoved shall see,
In the battle's din and shock,
For the Lord himself thy strength shall be,
And thine everlasting Rock. [Chorus]
