1 Stand, soldier of the cross,
Thy high allegiance claim,
And vow to hold the world but loss
For Thy Redeemer's Name.
2 Arise, and be baptized,
And wash thy sins away;
Thy league with God be solemnized,
Thy faith avouched to-day.
3 Thine is our country now,
Our Lord and Master thine,
Receive imprinted on Thy brow
His Passion's awful sign.
4 No more thine own, but Christ's,
With all the saints of old,
Apostles, seers, evangelists,
And martyr throngs enrolled.
5 O bright the conqueror's crown,
The song of triumph sweet,
When faith casts every trophy down
At our great Captain's feet.
