Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
