CONFLICT AND HEROISM
|127||Sound the Battle Cry|
|William F. Sherwin||William F. Sherwin|
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.
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.
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.
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.
