Representative Text

1 We are gath’ring ’round the banner
Which in beauty waves on high,
For we love the holy standard
Of the Lord who rules the sky.

Singing, singing loud the song of triumph!
For the Lord of Hosts is King,
And through all the earth and heaven
Shall his holy praises ring.

2 We shall fight the battle bravely,
Though the conflict rages long,
For our Bulwark is almighty,
Our Defender sure and strong. [Refrain]

3 He who bears the name of Jesus,
Tramples down his fiercest foe!
He who fights behind his standard,
Unto victory shall go! [Refrain]

4 Then with glowing hope within us,
And unchanging faith and love;
We will onward march together,
While our banner waves above. [Refrain]
