Full Text

1 Show your colors, while you journey
Lift the gospel banner high;
Let it tell of Christ, the Saviour,
Who from God came forth to die.

Refrain:
Show your colors, show your colors,
Let the banner be unfurl’d,
Till it waves o’er ev’ry nation,
And the kingdoms of the world.

2 Plant your colors on the mountains,
On the hill tops and the plains;
Rally round the glorious standard
Of the King who ever reigns. [Refrain]

3 ‘Neath the colors of your Captain
Charge against the ranks of sins;
You shall scale the mighty ramparts,
And the vict’ry you shall win. [Refrain]
