If you know where to get a good pho­to of Price (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Come and join our hap­py throng,
Lift your voice in joy­ful song,
As Je­ho­vah’s name we praise;
’Neath the ban­ner of the right
We are press­ing to the fight,
And our an­them loud we raise.


Glory and hon­or
To the Lamb for­ev­er!
Glory in the high­est, sing
Hallelujah to His name!
Let our voic­es loud pro­claim
Hallelujah to our Sav­ior King!

See! our cap­tain leads us on,
He has need of ev­ery one,
For His cause must ne­ver fail;
And tho’ Sa­tan bars the way,
Yet we press to vic­to­ry,
For Je­ho­vah must pre­vail.


Then no long­er hal­ting stand,
Come and join our youth­ful band,
As we march the foe to meet;
For we’ll wear a vic­tor’s crown,
When we lay our ar­mor down,
And our tro­phies at His feet.
