The Banner of the Cross  Misc. Gospel

[G]There's a royal banner given for display
To the [D7]soldiers of the [G]King;

As an ensign fair we lift it up today,
While as [D]ransomed [A7]ones we [D]sing.

Marching [D7]on, marching [G]on,
For [C]Christ count [G]everything but [D]loss!
And to [G]crown Him King, [C]toil and sing
[G]'Neath the banner [D7]of the [G]cross!

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.


Over land and sea, wherever man may dwell,
Make the glorious tidings known;
Of the crimson banner now the story tell,
While the Lord shall claim His own!


When the glory dawns- 'tis drawing very near-
It is hastening day by day;
Then before our King the foe shall disappear,
And the cross the world shall sway!
