Representative Text

1 Lift the Royal banner higher,
Banner of the free;
Let its folds of mercy waving
Now encircle me.

Ring aloud the glorious anthem,
Anthem of the free!
Wave the banner, love its motto—
"Jesus died for me."

2 Floating out amid the gloaming,
Wave it, lift it high,
Till the myriad lost ones see it.
Weary ones draw nigh. [Refrain]

3 As the serpent once uplifted
On the burning plain,
So our Jesus, now uplifted,
Bids us look again. [Refrain]

4 Jesus waits to bid you welcome,
Hear his loving voice;
Come, my brother, heed his calling,
Evermore rejoice. [Refrain]

5 "Come and taste my love unending,"
Jesus says to thee;
Pleasures rich, and joy unceasing,
Thine shall ever be. [Refrain]

6 When the waves of sin are rolling,
Like a mighty sea,
Trust in Jesus, he will help thee,
Jesus died for thee. [Refrain]

7 Courage, brother, do not falter,
Press with vigor on,
Jesus ever beckons onward,
On to glory, on! [Refrain]
