When the gong of duty is beaten

When the gong of duty is beaten

When the gong of duty is beaten,
Some will hear, some will not.
Some will understand its message while others will wait for it to be written.
Some will agree with the message while others will find fault.
But we must arise and act even if we were sitting,
When the gong of duty is beaten.

When the gong of duty is beaten,
When it calls us to lift up the standards that are falling,
Even if it’ll take us across rivers and lakes,
Even if our last dime it’ll take.
We must arise without lingering,
When the gong of duty is beaten.
