The Banner of the Cross
There’s a royal banner given for display to the soldiers of the King; As an ensign fair we lift it up today, while as ransomed ones we sing.
Though the foe may rage and gather as the flood, let the standard be displayed; And beneath its folds, as soldiers of the Lord, for the truth be not dismayed!
Over land and sea, wherever man may dwell, make the glorious tidings known; Of the crimson banner now the story tell while the Lord shall claim His own!
When the glory dawns –’tis drawing very near — it is hastening day by day. Then before our King the foes shall disappear, and the cross the world shall sway!
Chorus: Marching on, marching on, for Christ count every thing but loss! And to crown Him King, toil and sing, ‘neath the banner of the cross!
