THE CHURCH
584
2   Fling out the banner! angels bend
In anxious silence o'er the sign, And vainly seek to comprehend The wonder of the love divine.
3   Fling out the banner! heathen lands
Shall see from far the glorious sighi And nations, crowding to be born, Baptize their spirits in its light.
4  Fling out the banner! sin-sick souls,
That sink and perish in the strife,
Shall touch in faith its radiant hem, I And spring immortal into life.
5   Fling out the banner! let it float
Skyward and seaward, high and wide Our glory, only in the cross; Our only hope, the Crucified!
6   Fling out the banner! wide and high, '
Seaward and skyward, let it shine; Nor skill, nor might, nor merit ours; I We conquer only in that sign.
Bishop Georgk W. Doane1, i8J
