Stand by the Cross

Full Text

1 Stand by the cross when the morning sun
Beams on your way so bright;
Stand by the cross when the shadows fall,
Soon we will triumph for God and right.

Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
Vict’ry will come by and by;
Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
And we’ll conquer though we die.

2 Stand by the cross till the day is done,
Firm to the end and true;
Trust when the battle is raging wild,
For there is waiting a crown for you. [Refrain]

3 Stand by the cross like a soldier strong,
Fearlessly face the foe;
Soon shall the army of night recede,
Back from the morning’s triumphant glow. [Refrain]

4 Stand by the cross till the Lord returns,
Faithful through life’s last test;
Soon we shall hear from His blessed lips,
“Lay down thy armor and be at rest.” [Refrain]
