Representative Text

1 Our country for Jesus,
The land of the free,
From ocean to ocean,
From mountain to sea;
The Lord is our Captain,
His word is out guide;
We’re only to follow,
Whate’er may betide.

Keep the banner unfurled,
And the vict’ry loud sing,
Thus to conquer the world
For Jesus, our King.

2 Our country for Jesus,
The light of the world;
Our triumph is certain,
With banner unfurled;
For truth is victorious
O’er error and race;
While love sings melodious
The song of the free. [Refrain]

3 The children are calling,
Are calling for light,
While thousands are praying
And toiling with might.
Then let us be faithful,
The harvest is white;
The Bridegroom is coming,
Our lamps should be bright. [Refrain]
