Representative Text

1 All victorious swells the chorus,
From the church of God today;
Christ upon His throne eternal,
Reigns as King and shall alway.

Christ shall be King,
Christ shall be King;
All the nations as one shall sing,
Christ shall be King;
His the dominion o’er land and sea,
His is the glory and pow’r;
Christ shall be King,
Christ shall be King.

2 Volunteers at once are needed,
In His service to be true;
For the progress of His Kingdom,
Now the Lord hath need of you. [Refrain]

3 We shall give our time and talents,
Unto Him in grateful praise;
And this battle cry of vic’try,
Be our theme through coming days. [Refrain]
