Rallying around the banner of the Savior,
Soldiers, fall in line, and make ready for the fight;
’Gainst the host of sin,
Tho’ fierce may be the conflict,
Bravely take your stand
For the blessèd Lord and right.


Rally, for the cause of right;
Rally, till we win the fight;
Victory in His name we’ll sing,
When the battle’s won for our blessèd king.

Following His footsteps, ever marching onward,
Fearless tho’ you see that the enemy’s in sight;
Pressing to the front ranks in this mighty army,
Be a valiant soldier for Jesus and the right.


Christians, be not idle, you are greatly needed,
To advance the cause of the precious Lord of light;
Many are the lost ones, wandering now and dying,
Rally for the right, won’t you rally for the right?
