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.

Refrain:
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.
