Representative Text

1 "On to victory" shall our motto be,
While we march as soldiers of Christ our Lord;
Ne'er shall come defeat when the foe we meet
If for battle orders we take God's word.

Refrain:
"On to victory, on to victory"
Hear the ringing battle call.
"On to victory, on to victory"
Earth shall crown him Lord of all.

2 "On to victory" for on Calvary
Jesus conquered death that our souls might live;
Let us trust his name, and his promise claim,
In the Christian warfare he'll triumph give. [Refrain]

3 "On to victory" till the world is free
From the cruel bondage and blight of sin;
Onward, onward press, gaining new success,
Stars to shine forever through Jesus win. [Refrain]

4 "On to victory" till those heights we see
Where the angel armies of Jesus stand,
Then with joyous song we shall join the throng,
Singing happy praise in the glory-land. [Refrain]
