Representative Text

1 The Sunday-school army is marching along,
A band of young soldiers, undaunted and strong;
Jehovah our banner, salvation our song;
Our watchword the dear name of Jesus.

When the name of the blessed Redeemer we hear,
‘Tis as sweet as sweet music to listening ear;
Our standard lift higher, our banner we’ll wave
In honor of Jesus the mighty to save.

2 We’ve entered the service tho’ youthful in years,
The veterans we follow as true volunteers;
The watchword so precious till shouting with cheers,
Uplifting the standard of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 The ranks are increasing, still stronger they grow,
All over the world the glad tidings shall go;
Till nations in darkness the watchword shall know,
And trust in the dear name of Jesus. [Refrain]
