1 Thereâ€™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.
Marching on, marching on,
For Christ count everything but loss!
And to crown Him King, weâ€™ll toil and sing,
â€™Neath the banner of the cross!
2 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! (Chorus)
3 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! (Chorus)
4 When the glory dawns-â€”â€™tis drawing very near--
It is hastening day by day;
Then before our King the foe shall disappear,
And the cross the world shall sway! (Chorus)
