134. Victory is Near

1 A bugle note of triumph
Is sounding thro’ the land,
A note that stirs the nation
To help the temp’rance band;
And loyal, faithful workers,
Who toiled ‘mid hope and fear,
Proclaim with glad thanksgiving
That victory is near.

Refrain:
Pray on, and work together,
And fight without a fear;
We’ll give to God the glory,
That victory is near;
Pray on, and work together,
And fight without a fear;
We’ll give to God the glory,
That victory is near.

2 There once was but a handful
Who dared to strike a blow;
But now a mighty army
Is fighting with the foe.
New reinforcements daily
Are greeted with a cheer,
For fresh recruits tell plainly
That victory is near. [Refrain]

3 The prayers of wives and mothers,
The lifeblood of the brave,
The ceaseless toil of thousands
Unite the lost to save.
There is no gift too precious
To aid a cause so dear;
No sacrifice too costly
When victory is near. [Refrain]
