Advent Hymnals

657. OUR BANNER

Christ in Song,

1.
Brightly gleams our banner,
Pointing to the sky,
Waving wand'rers onward,
To their home on high;
Journ'ying o'er the desert,
Gladly thus we pray,
And with hearts united,
Take our heav'nward way.

Chorus:
Brightly gleams our banner,
Pointing to the sky,
Waving wand'rers onward
To their home on high.

2.
Jesus, Lord and Master;
At Thy sacred feet,
Here with hearts rejoicing,
See Thy children meet;
Often have we left Thee,
Often gone astray,
Keep us, mighty Saviour,
In the narrow way.  [Chorus]

3.
All our days direct us
In the way we go,
Lead us on victorious,
Over every foe;
Bid Thine angels shield us,
When the storm clouds low'r,
Pardon Thou, and save us
In the final hour.  [Chorus]
