16058. Sounding The Watch-Cry

1 Sounding the watch-cry, on we go;
Ever our col­ors glad we show;
Soldiers of Jesus, march along
With happy, hap­py hearts and grate­ful song.

Then sound aloud the watch-cry,
Joyful as we go;
Sound aloud the watch-cry
Working here be­low;
Sound the watch-cry ev­er
Till our work is done,
And our crown is won.

2 Sounding the watch-cry far and near,
Glory to Je­sus, Sav­ior dear;
O let the earth re­joice and sing
Hosanna to His name, our heav’n­ly king. [Refrain]

3 Fearless and faith­ful we would be;
Savior, unite us all in Thee;
Fit us to dwell on yon­der shore
And shout aloud Thy praise for ev­er­more. [Refrain]
