Representative Text

MARCH on, salvation soldiers,
March forward to the fight,
With Jesus as our leader,
We’ll put the foe to flight;
In spite of men and devils
We’ll raise our banner high,
For the day of victory’s coming by and by.

Refrain:
The day of victory’s coming, ‘tis coming by and by,
When to the cross of Calvary all nations they will fly;
We’re soldiers in the Army, we’ll fight until we die,
For the day of victory’s coming by and by.

2 Hell’s forces may be mighty,
A strong opposing band,
Yet never be discouraged,
For Jesus boldly stand;
With blood and fire we’ll conquer,
Our every foe defy,
For the day of victory’s coming by and by.

3 Though some would try to crush us,
We’re rising every day,
And soon o’er every land and sea
Our flag shall have the sway;
Salvation free to all men
Shall be our battle cry,
For the day of victory’s coming by and by.
