Representative Text

1 Sound the cry o’er land and sea,
Set the chorus ringing;
Soldiers of the King are we,
In his name we’re singing.

Soldiers of the King! Soldiers of the King!
We’re loyal in purpose and heart alway;
We fight ‘neath his banner, his will obey!
Soldiers of the King! Soldiers of the King!
We follow our Leader, he’ll win the day,
We’re soldiers of the King.

2 Wave his standard overhead,
Set his sign before us;
Bravely in his steps we tread,
With his banner o’er us. [Refrain]

3 Join the song of victory,
Fail and falter never;
Brave and sturdy hearts have we,
And we’ll serve him ever. [Refrain]
