1. O thou Rock of our salvation,Jesus, Savior of the world,In our poor and lowly stationWe thy banner have unfurled.
(Chorus)Gather round the standard bearer;Gather round in strength of youth.Ev'ry day the prospect's fairerWhile we're battling for the truth.
2. We a war 'gainst sin are waging;We're contending for the right.Ev'ry day the battle's raging;Help us, Lord, to win the fight.
3. Onward, onward, we'll be singingAs we're marching firm and true,Each succeeding battle ringing,Earnest of what we can do.
4. When for all that we've contended,When the fight of faith we've won,When the strife and battle's ended,And our labor here is done,
(Chorus after fourth verse)Then, O Rock of our salvation,Jesus, Savior of the world,Take us from our lowly station;Let our flag with thee be furled.
