Stewards of the Standard

"As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the LORD is tried: He is a Buckler to all them that trust in Him" (2 Samuel 22:31).  "Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth" (Psalm 60:4).  "He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness… The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment" (Proverbs 12:17,19).  "Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God" (1 Corinthians 4:1). 

We hold the standard of God's Word
As stewards of a priceless treasure.
His promises have all endured
As tried and true by every measure. 

The truth that God has given us
Should not be hidden that He gave;
His banner is victorious,
Announcing Christ alone can save!

As we declare God's righteousness,
We lift the banner of our Savior
Who died for us that He might bless
The sinner by His saving favor. 

As stewards of the standard, Lord,
That You have given to display,
We raise Your banner and the sword
Of Gospel truth that we convey.
