Full Text

1 Blessed host of the Lord, with your banners march along,
Tune your hearts and your tongues, let the gospel be your song;
Though your work may be great, from its duties never fly.
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by.

Refrain:
Sound the trump, sound the trump of the gospel far and near,
Sound it forth, sound it forth, bid the sleeping nations hear;
Sound it forth undismayed, though the tempter’s arrows fly,
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by. [Refrain]

2 Blessed host of the Lord, look away to yonder star
Shining down on your path from the Eden land afar;
Lift your souls, lift your eyes, for the day is drawing nigh;
Thanks to God, the vict’ry’s coming by and by. [Refrain]

3 Blessed host of the Lord, on His promised word depend,
Lo, His arm for your aid shall in mighty power descend;
And the ranks of the foe shall before your banners fly,
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by. [Refrain]
