PLEDGE TO THE CROSS

I pledge allegiance to the cross, of our Lord Jesus Christ,
And to the faith for which it stands, one Savior, eternal,
with mercy and grace for all.



"The Christian Flag"


The Christian Flag! behold it,
And hail it with a song,
And let the voice of millions
The joyful strain prolong,
To every clime and nation,
We send it forth today;
God speed its glorious mission,
With earnest hearts we pray.

Refrain

The Christian Flag! behold it,
And hail it with a song,
And let the voice of millions
The joyful strain prolong.

The Christian Flag! unfurl it,
That all the world may see
The bloodstained cross of Jesus,
Who died to make us free.
The Christian Flag! unfurl it,
And oer and oer again,
Oh! may it bear the message,
Good will and peace to men.

Refrain

The Christian Flag! God bless it!
Now throw it to the breeze,
And may it wave triumphant
Oer land and distant seas,
Till all the wide creation
Upon its folds shall gaze,
And all the world united,
Our loving Savior praise.

-- Fanny Crosby, 1903
Music - R. Huntington Woodman





In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. -Zechariah 13: 1
