Representative Text

1 On to the conflict, soldiers, for the right,
Arm you with the Spirit’s sword and march to fight;
Truth be your watchword, sound the ringing cry:
Victory, victory, victory!

Ever is the war cry,
Victory, victory!
Ever is the war cry,
Write it on your banners,
Get it on your knees,
Victory, victory, victory!

2 Fiercely it rages, deadly is the strife,
But the prize that you shall win is endless life;
Jesus shall crown you, your reward shall be
Victory, victory, victory!

3 Valiant and cheerful, marching right along,
Every foe shall quit the field, though proud and strong;
Fear shall oppress them; truth shall make them flee;
Victory, victory, victory!

4 Soon shall the warfare and the conflict cease,
Soon shall dawn the welcome day of lasting peace;
Foes all subdued, we’ll raise the joyful cry:
Victory, victory, victory!
