The herald is calling

Representative Text

1 The herald is calling, is calling from far,
The mighty One cometh this way;
The trumpets are sounding the signal of war,
Who’ll follow His banner today?

He cometh, He cometh, the Son of the Lord,
The cause of the right is His own.
Who’ll follow His banner, His banner afar,
To fight for His kingdom and throne?

2 Who’ll leave every selfish and worldly desire,
The pride of distinction and fame,
To follow the Saviour, his Leader and King,
And ever bear onward His name? [Refrain]

3 Who’ll bind on the sword and the armor of truth,
And bravely press on to the fight?
Who’ll count it all glory, who’ll count it all gain,
To die for the cause of the right? [Refrain]

4 The herald is calling, is calling from far,
Prepare for the battle and strife;
Come nobly and offer your all to the Lord,
Your hope, your ambition, your life! [Refrain]
