1. Keep the banner flying,
This your cry should be,
Many souls are dying,
Jesus must they see;
Under condemnation,
Life will soon be gone;
Only is salvation
In the Sinless One.

Refrain
Shout, shout the battle cry,
Girt with endeavor;
Lift, lift the banner high,
Now and forever;
Shout, shout the battle cry,
Girt with endeavor;
Lift, lift the banner high,
Now and forever.

2. Keep the banner flying;
When the faithful fall,
Give not up to sighing,
Christ is all in all;
Rally all your forces,
See, the Captain’s near;
Trust to His resources,
There is naught to fear. [Refrain]

3. Keep the banner flying;
Christians should agree,
With each other vying,
Yet in harmony;
Working still for Jesus,
Righting human wrong,
Till the angels greet us
With their welcome song. [Refrain]

4. Keep the banner flying,
Over land and sea;
By yourself denying
Comes the victory;
Brighten toil with singing,
Better days will come;
To the Savior clinging,
You shall rest at home. [Refrain]
