1 Banners waving proudly o’er us,
Voices swelling loud the chorus,
Hope the way makes bright before us,
Vit’ry, vict’ry ours shall be.

Marching, marching, cheerily the bugle sounding,
Marching, marching, ready we to meet the foe;
Marching, marching, lightly ev’ry heart is bounding,
Jesus is our Captain, as we onward go.

2 To the nations slowly waking,
Lands their idol gods forsaking,
We the light of life are taking,
Vit’ry, vict’ry ours shall be. [Refrain]

3 Join us in our good endeavor,
On we’ll go and falter never,
‘Tis the cause of God forever,
Vit’ry, vict’ry ours shall be. [Refrain]
