Juniors' Rallying Song

Peal the gospel tidings forth, with happy shout and song

Author: Emma Frances Barrows
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Peal the gospel tidings forth, with happy shout and song;
Sing it till we gain a chorus "fifty thousand strong."
Happy band of Junior Soldiers gathering all along;
Onward we 're marching to victory.

Then sing the chorus, shout the victory;
Glad songs of Christ, who makes us pure and free;
Joyful spread the tidings, till we reach the crystal sea;
Then shout with angels in glory.

2 Never heed the shouts derisive from the hosts of sin;
Foes among them always say our cause can never win.
Following our Captain, we shall surely enter in;
Christ always leads on to victory. [Chorus]

3 Happy band of Junior Soldiers, once again we meet;
Reenforcements added, with no record of defeat,
Though opposing powers unite, to make our ranks retreat,
Onward we march, sure of victory. [Chorus]
