671. THERE'S A ROYAL BANNER

 

There's a royal banner
given for display
To the soldiers of the King
As an ensign fair we lift it up today
While as ransomed ones we sing

 

CHORUS

Marching on (and on)!
Marching on (and on)!

 

For Christ count everything but loss…
For Christ count everything…
…everything but loss

 

And to crown Him King
(We'll) Toil and sing
(Be-) 'Neath the banner of the cross

 

VERSE 2

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!

 

VERSE 3

When the glory dawns
'tis drawing very near
It is hast'ning day by day
Then before our King
the foe shall disappear
And the cross the world shall sway!

LA BANDERA DE LA CRUZ

 

Cual pendón hermoso
despleguemos hoy
La bandera de la cruz

 

La verdad del Evangelio, el blasón
del soldado de Jesús

 

CORO

ˇAdelante! ˇAdelante
en pos de nuestro Salvador!
Con plena Fe en nuestro Rey
Adelante con valor

 

VERSO 2

Prediquemos siempre
lo que dice Dios
de la sangre de Jesús

 

Como limpia del pecado al mortal
y le compra la salud

 

VERSO 3

(Matches English verse 2 well)
En el mundo proclamemos con fervor
esta historia de la cruz

 

Bendigamos sin cesar al Redentor
que nos dió su paz y luz

 

VERSO 4

En el cielo
nuestro cántico será
Aleluya a Jesús

 

Nuestro corazón allí rebozará
de amor y gratitud
