1 Lo! a conq’ring army
Marching ‘gainst the foe!
Hear their war-cry ringing,
As they onward go!
Wrong shall have no quarter,
Right must win the day;
Heed the trumpet’s call,
And away!

Hear the call to battle,
Ringing loud and long,
See the conq’ring army,
Many thousands strong!
Hear the shout of triumph,
As they march to meet the foe,
‘Neath the flag of truth
Pure as snow.

2 Onward, soldiers, onward,
Vict’ry waits for you;
Christ will be your leader,
All the conflict thro’;
Where he leads you, follow;
Each a hero be,
Battling for the Right
Valiantly. [Refrain]

3 Never doubt or falter
In the fight with sin;
Strong in faith, believing
That the Right will win;
Let your courage fail not
When you meet the foe;
Hear the mighty host
Answer “No!” [Refrain]
