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.
    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.
  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.
