Edmund S. Lorenz (1854–1942)

We’ve heard the call to rally,
And we hasten to obey;
When Jesus needs our service,
We will heed without delay;
Redeemed with His own precious blood
On rugged Calvary,
We yield our all to Him.


Rally! is our watchword, Rally is our song!
All our time and all our power to Christ belong!
Rally, then with gladness, rally with a cheer,
We shall win the battle, for our captain’s near!

We’ll gather ’round His banner,
Glorious emblem of the right,
The symbol of His truth and love,
Agleam with holy light;
We’ll challenge every evil,
We will battle in His might,
And victory shall be ours.


We’ll help to save the fallen
From the snares of doubt and sin,
We’ll teach the youth to spurn the wrong
And choose the pure and clean;
We’ll go in Jesus’ precious name
And bring the world to Him,
And crown Him Lord for aye.
