Representative Text

1 Unfurl the Army banner,
The yellow, red and blue;
Its colours so resplendent
Display for all to view.
Its message is eternal,
Inspired from Heaven above,
Bright emblem of salvation,
Of holiness and love.

2 Lift high the Army banner
In every land and clime;
It calls to deeds of valour,
It speaks of grace divine.
Salvation, O salvation!
For every sinner free,
For every tribe and nation,
To all eternity.

3 Beneath this glorious banner
By Jesus’ grace we stand
In bonds of love eternal,
A holy, blood-washed band.
To arms, Salvation Army!
Loud rings the clarion call,
Nor weary in the conflict
Till Christ is Lord of all.
