Representative Text

1 Wave “New Glory,” conq’ring flag of love,
Swift unfurl it to the skies above,
Forward Christians! in God’s truth arrayed,
Gladly march beneath it in the world crusade.

Refrain:
Forward, forward, bear the flag unfurled,
Onward marching through the whole wide world;
Wave “New Glory,” banner of His love,
Claiming every heart for God above,
Claiming every heart for God above,
Claiming, claiming every heart for God above.

2 Lift His banner, Christ shall win the field,
Where the cross moves on the foe must yield,
Thrones and kingdoms soon it will unite
In a mighty army, for the good and right. [Refrain]

3 Wave “New Glory,” to the ends of earth,
Claiming captives for a heav’nly birth,
Glad redemption unto all it brings,
Emblem of the crowning of the King of Kings. [Refrain]
