Only an armour bearer firmly I stand




Only an armor bearer, firmly I stand,
Waiting to follow at
the King’s command;
Marching, if “Onward”
shall the order be,
Standing by my Captain,
serving faithfully.

Hear ye the battle cry!
“Forward!” the call;
See, see the falt’ring ones,
backward they fall;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be.



Only an armor bearer,
now in the field,
Guarding a shining helmet,
sword, and shield,
Waiting to hear the thrilling battle cry,
Ready then to answer,
“Master, here am I.”

Hear ye the battle cry!
“Forward!” the call;
See, see the falt’ring ones,
backward they fall;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be.



Only an armor bearer,
yet may I share
Glory immortal,
and a bright crown wear;
If in the battle to my trust I’m true,
Mine shall be the honors
in the Grand Review.

Hear ye the battle cry!
“Forward!” the call;
See, see the falt’ring ones,
backward they fall;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be;
Surely my Captain
may depend on me,
Tho’ but an armor bearer I may be.
