1 God’s truth is like a hammer,
That rocks asunder breaks,
Before it error’s mountains must crumble and must quake;
It marches on to vict’ry tho’ trampled in the dust,
Yet, truth shall win forevermore, it must, it must, it must!

Refrain:
God’s truth shall win at last, as bread on waters cast;
It will return it will return, it will return some day,
Then forward to the fight,
Dispelling error’s night,
O praise the Lord forevermore,
The Truth shall win at last.

2 They say there’s no Creator;
That earth sung into space,
And by its own attractions, it chanced to take its place;
But God is its creator, His word shall never rust,
And truth shall win forevermore, it must, it must, it must! [Refrain]

3 They say our Lord and Savior
Was human, not Divine,
His life but an example, a guiding star to shine;
But there is full atonement, when in His blood we trust,
The truth shall win forevermore, it must, it must, it must! [Refrain]
