Gospel Victory March

Representative Text

1 Ever, ever onward, banners flying,
Pressing to the conflict, "Vict'ry!" crying;
Trusting in the Lord, hell's hosts defying,
On to meet the foe we bravely go.

Onward, onward, onward, bravely onward,
Christ our Captain goes before us,
Truth's bright flag is floating o'er us,
Vict'ry! vict'ry! vict'ry glorious
Shall be ours thro' Christ our King!

2 Ever, ever onward, sins forgiven,
Pilgrims in the earth, our homes in heaven;
Walking in the Spirit God hath given;
On to meet the foe in Christ we go. [Refrain]

3 Ever, ever onward, Jesus, leading,
Helping ev'ry soul with grace exceeding,
Naught in earth or hell our march impeding,
On to meet the foe in faith we go. [Refrain]

4 Ever, ever onward, all united;
Happy in the Lord, our wrongs all righted;
Glory in our view, nor duty slighted,
On to meet the foe we daily go. [Refrain]
