Representative Text

1 We'll shout aloud throughout the land
The praises of our God,
We’ll fight beneath our flag unfurled,
Kept by his precious blood.

So we’ll lift up the banner on high,
The salvation banner of love;
We’ll fight beneath its colours till we die,
Then go to our home above.

2 Salvation full shall be our cry,
Whatever men may say;
We’ll fight for God until we die;
We’re bound to win the day.

3 Salvation soldiers, fighting on,
Be more courageous still;
To God the world shall yet belong,
And bend its stubborn will.
