Representative Text

1 Soldiers of the cross, awaken!
Hear ye not the trumpet sound?
Come and rally ‘round the banner,
Where the sons of Christ are found!

Refrain:
Wake to honor! wake to duty!
For the battle has begun,
And the holy cause we follow,
Calls for ev’ry valiant son!

2 Arm yourselves, ye Christian soldiers
With the helmet and the sword,
While the clarion call is sounding,
Forward, trusting in His word. [Refrain]

3 For the King divine, we’re fighting,
And His foes shall be our own!
Till the mighty hosts are conquered
And our Sovereign reigns alone! [Refrain]

4 Soldiers of the cross of Jesus,
Bear His standard bravely on!
When His truth shall reign triumphant,
Then the day of peace shall dawn! [Refrain]
