Representative Text

1 Holiness unto the Lord, let it be our marching song,
Marching on together, a glad, triumphant throng;
In ourselves but weakness, in Jesus we are strong,
Holiness unto the Lord forever.

Refrain:
Holiness unto the Lord,
Let the message ever ring,
Holiness unto the Lord,
Let His ransomed children sing;
Magnify the Lord, magnify the Lord our King,
Holiness unto the Lord forever;
Holiness unto the Lord,
Let the message ever ring,
Holiness unto the Lord,
Let His ransomed children sing;
Magnify the Lord, evermore our King,
Holiness unto the Lord forever.

2 Holiness unto the Lord, let it be our battle-cry,
Overcoming evil, because the Lord is nigh;
Let our hymn of vict’ry, reecho to the sky,
Holiness unto the Lord forever. [Refrain]

3 Holiness unto the Lord, in the blessings He bestows,
Time and friends and talent for Him the harvest grows;
Using in His service the brier and the rose,
Holiness unto the Lord forever. [Refrain]
