Lyrics

Verse 1 Come, brethren, follow where our Captain trod, Our King victorious, Christ the Son of God. Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim, Till all the world adore His sacred Name. Verse 2 Led on their way by this triumphant sign, The hosts of God in conquering ranks combine. Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim, Till all the world adore His sacred Name. Verse 3 Each newborn servant of the Crucified Bears on the brow the seal of Him Who died. Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim, Till all the world adore His sacred Name. Verse 4 This is the sign which Satan's legions fear And angels veil their faces to revere. Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim, Till all the world adore His sacred Name. Verse 5 Saved by this Cross whereon their Lord was slain, The sons of Adam their lost home regain. Refrain Verse 6 From north and south, from east and west They raise in growing unison their songs of praise. Refrain Verse 7 O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree, As thou hast promised, draw the world to thee. Refrain Verse 8 So shall our song of triumph ever be, Praise to the Crucified for victory. Refrain Verse 9 Let every race and every language tell Of him who saves our souls from death and hell. Refrain Verse 10 From farthest regions let their homage bring, And on his Cross adore their Savior King. Refrain Verse 11 Set up thy throne, that earth's despair may cease Beneath the shadow of its healing peace. Refrain Verse 12 For thy blest Cross which doth for all atone Creation's praises rise before thy throne. Refrain...
