Representative Text

1 Stand by your colors, never falter, never fail,
Jesus is leading, in His name you shall prevail;
Follow His leading, bravely His commands to do;
Stand by your colors, and the Lord will stand by you.

Refrain:
He will stand by you, He will stand by you,
Onward then for service, glad and true;
All your best unto Him bringing,
Set the watchword ringing, ringing,
Stand by your colors, and the Lord will stand by you.

2 Enter the struggle, gladly falling into line;
Trusting His promise, all your foolish fears resign;
Cheer on each other, keep His banner well in view;
Stand by your colors, and the Lord will stand by you. [Refrain]

3 Stand by your colors, strength He’ll give for ev’ry day;
Be not discouraged, there is vict’ry on the way;
Joyful His service if your heart is good and true;
Stand by your colors, and the Lord will stand by you. [Refrain]
