Don't you hear them shouting victory

Representative Text

1 Don’t you hear them shouting vict’ry, all along the line?
‘Tis the army of the Lord, almighty throng;
Don’t you see their lifted banners in the sunlight shine,
As they sing their happy hallelujah song?

Don’t you hear them shouting?
Praise to grace Divine,
“Victory, victory,” all along the line;
“Jesus and salvation,” that’s the counter sign;
“Victory, victory,” all along the line.

2 Don’t you hear them shouting vict’ry, in the forward ranks?
They are marching t’ward the Palace of the King;
To his blessed name ascribing glad and loving thanks
Trusting him for help that he will surely bring. [Refrain]

3 Don’t you hear them shouting vict’ry? God is on our side,
And we will not fear what evil foes may do;
We are safe if we but follow closely at his side,
He will be to ev’ry precious promise true. [Refrain]
