From: Tim Felten email@example.com WORDS & MUSIC: William Fiske Sherwin(1826-1888) capo on 3rd fret SOUND THE BATTLE CRY G Sound the battle cry! C G See, the foe is nigh; D A7 D Raise the standard high for the Lord; G Gird your armor on, C G Stand firm everyone; Em D7 G Rest your cause upon His holy Word. CHORUS: G D7 G Rouse, then, soldiers, rally round the banner, B Em A D Ready, steady, pass the word a-long; D7 G Onward, forward, shout a loud ho-sanna! Em D7 G Christ is Captain of the mighty throng. Strong to meet the foe, Marching on we go, While our cause we know must prevail; Shield and banner bright, Gleaming in the light; Battling for the right we ne'er can fail. (REPEAT CHORUS) O Thou God of all, Hear us when we call, Help us one and all by Thy grace; When the battle's done, And the vict'ry's won, May we wear the crown before Thy face. (REPEAT CHORUS)Home
