1 Make the world with music ring,
While with heart and voice we sing
Praises to our God and King,
Tell with no uncertain sound,
To the nations all around,
Of the Saviour we have found,

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We shall conquer through the blood,
Give the glory all to God;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We shall conquer through the blood,

2 Through the blood we shall prevail,
Though both earth and Hell assail,
God in man can never fail,
Keep your weapons sharp and bright,
Buckle on the armour tight,
Fighting is our great delight,

3 Everlasting arms are round,
Walls of fire the saints surround,
Enemies we shall confound,
Forward with the sword and shield,
Victory waits us on the field,
Stand your ground and never yield,

4 Sing your songs, ye saints of light,
Soon we shall escape from night,
Up to glory wing our flight,
Face to face we then shall see
Him who died upon the tree,
Crowned with glory we shall be,
