JOY! joy! joy! there is joy in The Salvation Army,
Joy! joy! joy! in the Army of the Lord.
Sing to God, sing to God, with loud joyful songs of praise;
Beat the drums, beat the drums, while salvation music plays.
Play the music, play, sing the happy song,
Loud hosannas shout with the happy throng,
To the happy land we’ll march along,
And be joyful all the way.

2 Joy! joy! joy! there is joy in The Salvation Army,
Joy! joy! joy! in the Army of the Lord.
Blood and fire, blood and fire, is the Army soldier’s might;
Blood and fire, blood and fire, is our victory in the fight.
‘Tis the blood and fire gives the battle cry,
‘Tis the blood and fire makes the foe to fly,
‘Tis the blood and fire gives the Army joy
And victory all the way.

3 Joy! joy! joy! there is joy in The Salvation Army,
Joy! joy! joy! in the Army of the Lord.
We will sing, we will sing, till the world is full of joy;
We will shout, we will shout, till glad voices rend the sky.
With a thousand bands and a thousand drums
We will praise the Lord in bright, happy homes,
We will sing and shout till the Master comes,
We will ever praise the Lord.
