Lift the Banner Higher

Representative Text

1 Lift the banner of the cross!
Rally 'round its folds to-day,
Let it never suffer loss,
Speed it on its glorious way.

Banner bright! banner bright!
Banner free, banner free,
May our watch-word ever be, ever be,
Banner bright, banner bright,
Banner free, banner free,
Christ, the Lord, who died for me.

2 Soldiers of a mighty cause!
Raise the royal banner high;
While we heed our master's laws,
We may earthly pow'r defy. [Chorus]

3 They who bear it bravely on,
Soon their heart's desire shall see;
For the world ere long must own
This, the flag of victory. [Chorus]
