Representative Text

1 Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
Pledge of victory.
We will gladly, sweetly sing,
As we follow Christ our King,
Gladsome off’rings to him bring;
Hallelujah!

Refrain:
Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
The pledge of victory,
Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
The pledge of victory.

2 He for our redemption
Came to earth and died,
He is gone before us
As our Friend and Guide.
Now is past the pain and shame,
But his love is still the same,
Praise ye then his glorious name;
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 Let us ever onward;
Never let us fear,—
Lift the standard higher
Victory is near.
We will gladly, sweetly sing,
AS we follow Christ our King,
Gladsome off’rings to him bring;
Hallelujah! [Refrain]
