Revelation 2:25
"But that which ye have already hold fast till I come."

          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 ev'ry 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.
