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


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?
