Sound the Battle Cry!

William Sherwin

Sound the battle cry! See! the foe is nigh;
Raise the standard high for the Lord;
Gird your armor on, stand firm ev’ry one;
Rest your cause upon His holy Word.

Rouse, then, soldiers! Rally round the banner!
Ready, steady, pass the word along;
Onward, forward, shout a loud “Hosanna!”
Christ is Captain of the mighty throng.

Strong to meet the foe, marching on we go,
While our cause we know must prevail;
Shield and banner bright, gleaming in the light,
Battling for the right we ne’er can fail.

O! Thou God of all, hear us when we call;
Help us one and all by Thy grace;
When the battle’s done, and the vict’ry won,
May we wear the crown before Thy face.
