49. Uplift the Banner!

1. Uplift the banner! Let it float
Skyward and seaward, high and wide;
The sun shall light the shining folds,
The cross on which our Saviour died.

2. Uplift the banner! Angels bend
In anxious silence o'er the sign,
And vainly seek to comprehend
The wonder of the love divine.

3. Uplift the banner! Let it float
Skyward and seaward, high and wide;
Our glory only in the cross,
Our only hope the Crucified.

4. Uplift the banner! Wide and high,
Skyward and seaward, let it shine;
Nor skill, nor might, nor merit ours;
We conquer only in that sign.
