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.
