Raising The Standard

As soldiers in God’s army
by love and duty bound,
We must uphold the standard
the wicked to confound.
To hide our Sovereign’s colours
indoors and out of sight,
Will bring no glory to the cause
just hindrance to the fight.

Or even to surrender
our colours to the foe,
Has been the sorry plight of some
when Satan’s laid them low.
Although at times it’s easy
to wave a flag for God,
Being faithful unto death remains
the standard for reward.

As soldiers in God’s army
by love and duty bound,
We must uphold the standard
the wicked to confound.
So blessed be the faithful
who at the Lord’s command,
Raise high the standard of their King
and in the battle, stand!

    What a great song Tom and what a priviledge we have to be a part of this end-time army …. may we continue to arise and shine with His light and glory in these dark days. Wishing you and your family a wonderfully blessed Christmas.
