529. Brightly gleams our banner

6.5., 12 lines

Sion:

Henry Smart, 1872

Vexillum:

Henry Smart, 1868

Refrain

Thomas J. Potter, 1860

Brightly gleams our banner,

Pointing to the sky,

Waving wanderers onward

To their home on high.

488

Journeying o'er the desert,

Gladly thus we pray,

And with hearts united

Take our heavenward way.

Brightly gleams our banner,

Pointing to the sky,

Waving wanderers onward

To their home on high.

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 Savior,

In the narrow way.

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 lower,

Pardon, Lord, and save us

In the last dread hour.

Then with saints and angels

May we join above,

Offering prayers and praises

At thy throne of love.

When the toil is over,

Then comes rest and peace,

Jesus in his beauty!

Songs that never cease!

Amen.
