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.

"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]
