78. We Shall Triumph

1 Hark! I hear a shout along the line;
Christ is leading with His love divine;
"On, ye Christian soldiers, brave and true!"
This command is giv'n to me and you.

Christ is leading this mighty army on;
We shall triumph over sin and wrong,
Each recruit has the armor of the Lord,
It is taken from His precious word.

2 We shall triumph in His glorious might;
We will keep our gospel armor bright;
"On," He calls, "on, on to victory!
Rise! take up your cross and follow me." [Chorus]

3 He, our Fortress, is our sure reward;
We shall triumph, guided by His word;
Sound His order all along the line!
Christ, the blessed Lord doth bid us shine. [Chorus]
