11974. On To Victory

1 Christian, gird the armor on,
There’s a victory to be won,
For the Lord, for the Lord!
Take the helmet, sword and shield,
Forth unto the battlefield
At His word, at His word.

On we’ll march to victory,
Jesus will our leader be,
Jesus will our leader be;
On we’ll march to victory,
To a final and a glorious victory.

2 Let His banner be unfurled,
Till it waves o’er all the world,
Sea to sea, shore to shore,
Till the nations all shall own
He is King and He alone
Evermore, evermore. [Refrain]

3 When the battle shall be done,
And the victory be won,
Conflict past, conflict past,
In the new Jerusalem
We shall wear a diadem
At the last, at the last. [Refrain]

4 That will be an hour of joy,
Praise shall then our tongues employ
More and more, more and more;
We shall stand before the King
And the song of triumph sing
Evermore, evermore. [Refrain]
