“Called unto holiness,” church of our God,
Purchase of Jesus, redeemed by His blood;
Called from the world and its idols to flee,
Called from the bondage of sin to be free.

Refrain

“Holiness unto the Lord” is our watchword and song.
“Holiness unto the Lord” as we’re marching along.
Sing it, shout it, loud and long,
“Holiness unto the Lord,” now and forever.

“Called unto holiness,” children of light,
Walking with Jesus in garments of white;
Raiment unsullied, nor tarnished with sin;
God’s Holy Spirit abiding within.

“Called unto holiness,” praise His dear Name!
This blessèd secret to faith now made plain:
Not our own righteousness, but Christ within,
Living, and reigning, and saving from sin.

“Called unto holiness,” bride of the Lamb,
Waiting the Bridegroom’s returning again!
Lift up your heads, for the day draweth near
When in His beauty the King shall appear.

God planned that man should have a wife,

And a shelter be their home.

That they should have children who would

Grow and likewise roam.

And these in turn should also learn, and a

Race thus should grow.

The home thus is the hub of life,

Because God made it so.

 

The true church (we know) is the body below,

Of Christ, in our day.

And forms the bride of the Lamb,

Holy, in every way.

Those who have tried to stamp, out its lamp

Have failed and always will.

God is not dead, as some have said;

He isn’t even ill!

 

The Christian school is a mighty tool,

For Jesus and the right.

Where every class is always taught,

In the Scripture’s holy light.

The devils fight to shut them tight,

And put them out of gear.

But God is on our side,

So pray on and never fear.

 

The Christian schools are not for fools,

Who deny that there’s a God.

But they point Him to exist from the stars,

Down to the sod.

May our God bless, W.C.S.,

With students who win souls,

And dash them in ‘mongst needy men,

From the equator to the poles.             -eab, ’73 Oct
