Representative Text

1 O banner of Jesus, in triumph advancing
Thy folds in the sunlight of beauty unfurled;
From the hillsides afar to the isles of the ocean,
Thy glory shall float till it conquers the world.

Refrain:
O Banner of Jesus, thou glory-crowned Banner,
Thou emblem of hope o’er the nations unfurled;
March on in triumph, March on in beauty,
Till Jesus, till Jesus has conquered the world;
March on in triumph, March on in beauty,
Till Jesus, till Jesus has conquered the world.

2 O say, can you see where the ranks are now marching?
With banners of beauty like conquerors they come;
They have fought the good fight, and in peace are returning,
The ransomed of Zion; o welcome them home! [Refrain]

3 Behold where they stand on the green hills immortal,
Their weapons unheeded, they rest on the shore;
There with heroes and martyrs in glory reposing,
Their warfare is ended, they weary no more. [Refrain]
