Representative Text

1 Where my King leads on, till the fight is won,
You will find me close beneath His banner bright;
With the brave and true I am going thro’,
Till the forces of my King shall win the fight.

Refrain:
Where He needs me, where He leads me,
All the way day by day,
Where He needs me, where He leads me
With my blessed Savior I will gladly go;
Where He needs me, where He leads me,
All the way day by day,
Where He needs me, where He leads me
I will follow Him who loved me so.

2 In the battle fray there is need today
For the loyal and the ever true and brave,
Who will follow on till the fight is won,
And the banners on the field of vict’ry wave. [Refrain]

3 Where my King leads on, till the fight is won,
And we stand upon the field of victory,
He will lead aright, thro’ the thickest fight,
And we’ll follow where His banner waves for me. [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
