The Standard of Truth has been erected;
No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing;
Persecutions may rage, mobs may combine,
Armies may assemble, calumny may defame,
But the truth of God will go forth
Boldly, nobly, and independent,
Till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime,
Swept every country, and sounded in every ear,
Till the purposes of God shall be accomplished,
And the Great Jehovah shall say
The work is done.
Till He shall say:
The work is done!
