Representative Text

1 In the service of the King ever loyal,
His commands we would obey;
And His watchword clear resounding far and near,
Bids us follow in His way.

Refrain:
Under the banner of our Captain,
Under the banner of our King;
We conquer by the cross ever glorious,
His standard to the breeze we fling;
Under the banner of our Captain,
Under the banner of our King;
We conquer by the cross ever glorious,
And songs of triumph sing.

2 In the service of the King ever loyal,
To His sway with joy we yield;
And our conq’ring sword His everlasting word,
Faith divine our shining shield. [Refrain]

3 In the service of the King ever loyal,
We will steadfast be and true;
In His royal way we follow on for aye,
And His pow’r shall strength renew. [Refrain]
