His banner over me was love.@Song of Solomon 2:4

Agnes C. Woolston, 1898 (🔊 pdf nwc).

On, toilers, onward, ne’er looking downward,
Rejoicing, ever keep thy eye above,
For God is o’er us, He goes before us;
His banner over us is love.

Refrain

On, march on with chorus loud and strong,
O sing it, on, march on,
For right against the wrong,
O ring it, on march on,
Our watchword in the fray,
With God in sight we’ll work for right
And win the day.

Go forth, O toilers, glad service giving,
In lowly places given o’er to sin;
Till, free from sorrow, shall fair tomorrow
Rejoice with sheaves all garnered in.

Refrain

Then onward, toilers, in shade or gladness,
With steady purpose ever strong and true,
The harvest glorious, in strife victorious,
The laborer crowned when toil is thro’.
