Hold The Fort!

Ho, my comrades!
see the signal,
Waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, Victory is nigh.


Chorus~

"Hold the fort, for I am coming"
Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to Heaven,
"By Thy grace we will."


See the mighty host advancing,
Satan leading on;
Mighty men around us falling,
Courage almost gone!

Chorus~

" Hold the fort,
for I am coming,"
Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to Heaven,
"By Thy grace we will."


See the glorious banner waving!
Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader's Name we'll triumph
Over every foe.


Chorus~

"Hold the fort,
for I am coming,"
Jesus signals still"
Wave the answer back to Heaven,
"By Thy grace we will."


Fierce and long the battle rages,
But our help is near;
Onward comes our Great Commander,
Cheer, my comrades, cheer.


Chorus~

"HOLD THE FORT,
FOR I AM COMING,"
JESUS SIGNALS STILL;
WAVE THE ANSWER BACK TO HEAVEN,
"BY THY GRACE WE WILL."


Song and words - Philip P. Bliss 1838-1876
