1 Hark! the bugle sounds "To arms!"
To the battlefield now speed you,
On to victr’y, soldiers on!
Fear you not defeat or harms,
Christ Himself will ever lead you,
On to victr’y, soldiers on!

Refrain:
On to victr’y, soldiers, on!
Soon the morn of peace will dawn;
Wave on high the flag that frees us
Till the world is won for Jesus,
On to victr’y, soldiers, on!

2 "To the front!" O hear the call,
Fiercely now the battle rages,
On to victr’y, soldiers on!
In God’s name the foe must fall,
He’s the Conqu’ror of all ages,
On to victr’y, soldiers on! [Refrain]

3 Falter not, but bravely fight
Till the world is peace possessing,
On to victr’y, soldiers on!
Then at last in Heav’n so bright
You’ll receive eternal blessing,
On to victr’y, soldiers on! [Refrain]
