Representative Text

1 Lift aloft the cross of Jesus,
Hold it high and strong;
Shout the name of him who saves us,
Swell the battle song.
Forward, soldiers, bold and fearless,
Hear the call of God;
Prove your courage in the conflict,
Tread where brave men trod.

Refrain:
Lift aloft the cross of Jesus,
Hold it high and strong;
Shout the name of him who saves us,
Swell the battle song.
Faith our shield, and hope our helmet,
Satan’s hosts we face;
Marshalled in the might of Jesus,
Win we by his grace.

2 Catch the order of our Captain,
Wield the Spirit’s sword;
Onward, fearless, press to conquer,
Slaying with his word.
They shall share the glad hosanna,
Who on him believe;
They shall ‘neath his royal banner
Crowns of life receive. [Refrain]
