1 Lo! the day of God is breaking;
See the gleaming from afar!
Sons of earth, from slumber waking,
Hail the bright and Morning Star.
Hear the call! O gird your armor on;
Grasp the Spirit's mighty Sword,
Take the helmet of salvation,
Pressing on to battle for the Lord.
2 Trust in him who is your Captain;
Let no heart in terror quail;
Jesus leads the gath'ring legions,
In his name we shall prevail. [Chorus]
3 Onward marching, firm and steady,
Faint not, fear not Satan's frown,
For the Lord is with you always,
Till you wear the victor's crown. [Chorus]
4 Conq'ring hosts with banners waving,
Sweeping on o'er hill and plain,
Ne'er shall halt till swells the anthem,
"Christ o'er all the world doth reign!' [Chorus]
