1 O Christian, a watchword we bring you today,
As upward the path leads before us;
Our nation for Jesus! we’ll sing on our way,
And trust in the love that is o’er us.

Refrain:
Then toil on, pray, on, never faint or fall,
But join in a constant endeavor
Our land with its millions to Jesus to bring,
To love Him and serve Him forever.

2 No realm ‘neath the skies is more beaut’ous than ours
Or richer in marks of God’s favor;
We’ll bring it with joy and with shoutings of song,
To lay at the feet of our Saviour.

3 But over the land comes a cry of distress
From souls that in darkness are lying,
‘Tis borne to our ears from the field and the street,
The wail of the lost and the dying. [Refrain]

4 We’ll pause not a moment the foe to assail,
But into our ranks quickly falling,
Our nation for Jesus! we sing and prevail,
For Jesus to vict’ry is calling. [Refrain]
