Barry,
OK, so it's 3 years since your post but I work more slowly these days. If you still want a copy of Over the Hills - I presume you went to St. Gabs Camp - please contact me on [email]johndon@ntlworld.com.[/email]

Found the lyrics and recording of the music here:
https://www.contrebombarde.com/concerth ... /15564Over the hills and the sea girt coast
Over the billows of blue,
Rings out a call from a Lord of Hosts,
Sent to the brave and true;
Now like the whisper clear it comes,
Now like a clarion cry,
Now like the roll of the war like drums,
When hearts beat high.......................

Chorus
Forward then O comrades true and tried
Tread where Christ has trod
Flinging ev'ry fear and doubt aside,
Looking up to God
Forward on the straight and splendid way;
Never let your footsteps roam;
Set your face to meet the dawning day,
Christ shall lead you home.

Over the town with its busy noise,
Over the ways of the world,
Still you can hear that commanding voice,
Still is the flag unfurled;
Hearts that are fixed with purpose true
Thrill to the call of love,
Finding a strength and a courage new
That nought can move.

This is the message it gives to you
All through the work of the day,-
Soldiers of Jesus! be brave and true,
Fight on and watch and pray;
Be not to paths of sin enticed,
Stand for the truth and right;
Wake, thou that sleepest! arise! and
Christ shall give thee light

Hark to the sound of the ringing voice,
Calling our hearts to decide!
Now is the time of the test and choice,
Who takes the Master's side?
Ours be the heart felt answ'ring word
Sent to the mighty call,-
One in the service of Christ our Lord,
With God o'er all.
