Representative Text

1 Let us rally, rally, rally ‘round the standard of the Lord!
Armor strong and bright He’ll give us, we can find it in His word;
Sword, and shield, and shining helmet, to protect against the foe,
Whom we’ll meet in daily conflict as thro’ life we onward go.

Refrain:
Let us rally, rally ‘round the cross,
And with colors flying march, a happy band;
Oh, let us rally, rally ‘round the cross,
And with vict’ry march to Canaan’s land.

2 Let us rally, rally, rally, ‘tis our loving Lord’s command!
He is always close beside us, with a strong and loving hand;
Fear not when the foe oppresses! we shall conquer in the fight,
For Jehovah is our Captain, we shall triumph by His might. [Refrain]

3 Let us rally, rally, rally, come and join our ranks today!
Come, and Christ will bid you welcome, teach you how to watch and pray;
See! His banner waveth o’er us! ‘neath its colors take your stand!
Come! for you we now are waiting come and join our happy band. [Refrain]
