1 Ho! my comrades! see the signal,
Waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory is nigh.
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,”
Jesus signals still,
Wave the answer back to heaven,
“By Thy grace we will.”
2 See the mighty host advancing,
Satan leading on;
Mighty men around us falling,
Courage almost gone! (Chorus)
3 See the glorious banner waving!
Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s name we triumph
Over ev'ry foe. (Chorus)
4 Fierce and long the battle rages,
But our help is near;
Onward comes our great Commander,
Cheer, my comrades, cheer! (Chorus)
