Our Great Red Cross
There's a ship that sails the world around --
Its flag is a red, red cross;
There's room for everyone aboard
And never a plea is lost.
Mercy, is the good ship's goal
As it breasts the stormy sea
Under the flag of OUR GREAT RED CROSS
To the PORT of CHARITY.
THE RED CROSS -- THE RED CROSS
Is mercy's hand to you;
The cause of Right is never lost
Where waves this banner true!
Its motto is FAIR PLAY TO ALL
Who come within its realm!
Each prayer for help is trumpet call
For God is at the helm!
The winds that fill this fair ship's sails
Are the winds of Truth and Right;
The lamps that light this fair ship's course
The Angels keep shining bright!
So Mercy reaches round the world
And never a cause is lost;
The "Mercy Ship" is the Haven of Hope --
And its name is THE RED CROSS!
