CONFLICT AND HEROISM


127 Sound the Battle Cry
William F. Sherwin William F. Sherwin
 
  1. Sound the battle cry, See! the foe is nigh
    Raise the standard high For the Lord;
    Gird your armor on, Stand firm every one;
    Rest your cause upon His Holy word.
    Refrain
     Rouse, then, soldiers ! Rally round the banner!
     Ready, steady, Pass the word along ;
     Onward, forward, Shout aloud, hosanna!
     Christ is Captain of the mighty throng.
  2. Strong to meet the foe, Marching on we go,
    While our cause we know, prevail;
    Shield and banner bright Gleaming in the light;
    Battling for the right, We ne'er can fill.
    Refrain
  3. O thou God of all, Hear us when we call,
    Help us one and all thy grace ;
    When the battle's done, And the victory won,
    May we wear the crown Before thy face.
    Refrain
    Amen.
