Representative Text

1 Hear the tread of coming millions
Marching on—the hosts of God;
Coming from the isles and nations,
Ransomed by the Savior’s blood.
Hear them shouting! Hear them shouting!
"He hath washed us in His blood!"
Hear them shouting! Hear them shouting!
"He hath washed us in His blood!"

2 God His promise is fulfilling
To His well belovèd Son:
Heathen nations to Him giving,
For a heritage, His own.
See them coming! See them coming!
All to worship at His throne,
See them coming! See them coming!
All to worship at His throne.

3 Christ is seeing of the travail
Of His loving, waiting, soul,
In the triumphs of the Gospel
Over men, from pole to pole.
Hear their praises! Hear their praises!
Like the voice of waters roll,
Hear their praises! Hear their praises!
Like the voice of waters roll.

4 Soldiers of the cross, long waiting
For the coming of this day—
Toiling, weeping, watching, praying—
Courage take and march away.
"We have triumphed! We have triumphed!"
Soon you’ll hear our captain say,
"We have triumphed! We have triumphed!"
Soon you’ll hear our captain say.

5 When the long retreat has sounded,
And our chieftain leads the way,
By His conquering hosts surrounded,
To the realms of endless day;
Then, how blessèd! Oh, how blessèd!
To have fought to win the day,
Then, how blessèd! Oh, how blessèd!
To have fought to win the day.

6 Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah to the Lamb!
All in earth and all in Heaven
Sound the praises of His name!
Mighty Savior! Mighty Savior!
We will conquer in Thy name,
Mighty Savior! Mighty Savior!
We will conquer in Thy name.
