1. Carry the standard bravely
Into the world’s great field;
Never desert our army,
Never give up our shield.

Refrain
Onward, onward, onward!
Cheerily, cheerily sing;
O carry the standard bravely
For Christ, the Lord, our King;
O carry the standard bravely
For Christ, the Lord, our King.

2. Carry the standard firmly,
Bear it where’er we go;
Wave it in youth’s bright morning,
Love for the Lord to show. [Refrain]

3. Carry the standard nobly,
Asking for aid divine;
Praying for light and wisdom
Over the path to shine. [Refrain]
