Shout aloud the stirring summons
O’er the land from sea to sea,
Men are wanted, men of courage
For the Man of Galilee.
O, Thou Man of Galilee!
Thou who died to set men free,
We will follow only Thee,
Blessèd Man of Galilee!

Men are wanted, men of purpose,
Men of high or low degree,
Each to be a fellow worker
With the Man of Galilee.
O, Thou Man of Galilee!
In the fight to set men free,
We will follow only Thee,
Glorious Man of Galilee!

From the counting-house and college,
From the forge and factory,
Lo, there throngs a loyal legion
For the Man of Galilee.
O, Thou Man of Galilee!
We will follow only Thee,
In a life of faith and service,
Blessèd Man of Galilee!

Onward! are His marching orders,
He who leads to victory,
Onward! till the world is taken
For the Man of Galilee.
O, Thou Man of Galilee!
We will follow only Thee,
O, Thou fearless, peerless Leader,
Glorious Man of Galilee!
