SOUND THE BATTLE CRY
Sound the battle cry!
See, the foe is nigh;
D A7 D
Raise the standard high for the Lord;
Gird your armor on,
Stand firm everyone;
Em D7 G
Rest your cause upon His holy Word.
G D7 G
Rouse, then, soldiers, rally round the banner,
B Em A D
Ready, steady, pass the word a-long;
Onward, forward, shout a loud ho-sanna!
Em D7 G
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's won,
May we wear the crown before Thy face.
