Hymn 169 - Hold the Fort

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Ho, my comrades! see the signal

Waving in the sky!

Reinforcements now appearing,

Victory is nigh.

See the mighty host advancing,

Satan leading on;

Mighty men around us falling,

Courage almost gone!

See the glorious banner waving!

Hear the trumpet blow!

In our Leader’s name we triumph

Over ev’ry foe.

Fierce and long the battle rages,

But our help is near,

Onward comes our great Commander,

Cheer, my comrades, cheer!


“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;

Wave the answer back to heaven, “By Thy grace we will.”
