Representative Text

1 Rouse ye! O ye freemen! For a foe is in your nation,
Sparing not your men and maidens on its downward way;
Rally to the standard of the Captain of Salvation,
Who never lost a battle; He calls for you today.

My Captain never lost a battle,
Anywhere, anywhere;
His army He is ever leading
On to certain victory;
All the host of the world defying,
With the cross-barred banner flying,
Join the mighty army, crying
Victory! Victory!

2 Hear ye! Through the darkness comes the sob of children weeping,
Robbed of health and hope and life, their heritage of love;
Waken from your slumber, ‘tis no time for sinful sleeping,
A Voice to you is calling! The Voice of God above. [Refrain]

3 Forward! God is with us, we are on His pow’r relying,
We shall gain the victory, our cause we know is just;
Forward! Never falter! All the host of sin defying,
Our God ne’er lost a battle, in him we put our trust. [Refrain]
