Representative 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.

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]
