1  Brightly gleams our banner, Pointing to the sky,
 Waving on Christ's soldiers To their home on high.
 Marching through the desert, Gladly thus we pray,
 Still with hearts united Singing on our way.
R.: Brightly gleams our banner, Pointing to the sky,
 Waving on Christ's soldiers To their home on high.

2  Jesus, Lord and Master, At Thy sacred feet,
 Here, with hearts rejoicing, See Thy children meet.
 Often have we left Thee, Often gone astray;
 Keep us, mighty Saviour, In the narrow way.
R.

3  Pattern of our childhood, Once Thyself a child,
 Make our childhood holy, Pure, and meek, and mild.
 In the hour of danger Whither can we flee,
 Save to Thee, dear Saviour, Only unto Thee?
R.

4  All our days direct us In the way we go;
 Crown us still victorious Over every foe;
 When the march is over, Then some rest and peace,
 Jesus in His beauty, Songs that never cease.
R.
