1 The men of the Church for the Master!
The men for the work of the hour!
Baptized with the spirit of service,
Equipped by the Spirit of pow'r.
We've a mission, we've a message
For the Man of Galilee;
For the Christ of Calvary we will love
And will follow, will follow and serve.
2 We take up the ensign of Luther;
We honor his valor and name:
We aim to be true to his purpose,
His Christ we exalt and proclaim. [Refrain]
3 We seek to ennoble our manhood,
To know of the truth thro' research;
To live for the weal of our brother,
To labor for Christ and His Church. [Refrain]
4 An army of men with a mission!
The brawn of the Church, tried and chaste;
We're sent by our King with a message,
His love must be published with hast. [Refrain]
