From: Tim Felten email@example.com WORDS: Daniel W. Whittle(1840-1901) MUSIC: James McGranahan(1840-1907) capo on 3rd fret THE BANNER OF THE CROSS G There's a royal banner given for display D7 G To the soldiers of the King; As an ensign fair we lift it up today, D A7 D While as ransomed ones we sing. CHORUS: D7 G Marching on, marching on, C G D For Christ count everything but loss! G C And to crown Him King, toil and sing G D7 G 'Neath the banner of the cross! Though the foe may rage and gather as the flood, Let the standard be displayed; And beneath its folds, as soldiers of the Lord, For the truth be not dismayed. (REPEAT CHORUS) Over land and sea, wherever man may dwell, Make the glorious tidings known; Of the crimson banner now the story tell, While the Lord shall claim His own! (REPEAT CHORUS) When the glory dawns- 'tis drawing very near- It is hastening day by day; Then before our King the foe shall disappear, And the cross the world shall sway! (REPEAT CHORUS)Home
