Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee,
that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

THE BANNER OF HIS TRUTH
There’s a royal banner given for display
To the soldiers of the King;
As an ensign fair we lift it up today,
While as ransomed ones we sing.
Marching on, marching on,
For Christ count everything but loss!
And to crown Him King, we’ll toil and sing,
’Neath the banner of His truth!
Though the foe may rage and gather as the flood,
Let the standard be displayed;
And beneath its folds, as soldiers of the Lord,
For the truth be not dismayed!
When the glory dawns—’tis drawing very near,
It is hastening day by day —
Then before our King the foe shall disappear,
And the truth the world shall sway!
