1 My spirit ne’er will quail,
My Captain cannot fail,
For victory, victory is the thrilling cry.
The Savior leads the way,
We’ll win in ev’ry fray,
For victory, victory is coming by and by.

Sound the battle cry,
Lift your voices high,
Follow Christ thro’ flood or flame!
We’ll march without a fear,
For He is ever near,
With victory, victory in His name!

2 Sweet music fills the air,
The trumpets loudly blare,
For victory, victory is the cry we hear.
It bids our courage rise,
And makes us fear despise,
For victory, victory triumphant now is near. [Refrain]

3 The standard now unfurled
Is seen by all the world,
For victory, victory is the saint’s reward.
Come, march beneath its folds!
A wondrous pow’r it holds,
For victory, victory is our thro’ Christ our Lord. [Refrain]
