Representative Text

1. Oh, rally round the standard
Of Christ, our royal king;
Oh, rally round His standard,
And hallelujahs sing.

For the morning draweth nigh,
For the morning draweth nigh;
We can see it in the distance,
We shall hear it, we shall hear it by and by.

2. Though long and deep the shadows
The dreary night may bring,
Our lamps are trimmed and burning,
Our hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]

3. To yonder golden region
Our faith now plumes her wing;
Our hearts with joy are bounding,
And hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]

4. To Him who paid our ransom,
And took from death the sting,
Be everlasting praises,
Let hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]
