1 O’e the battlements of heaven,
Comes a soul-inspiring cry:
God, himself, the word has given,
“On to victory.”

“On to victory,”
This our cry shall be,
God himself the word has spoken,
“On to victory!”

2 Evil hosts in fear are fleeing,
As the cross of Christ they see,
Onward press in triumph shouting,
“On to victory.” [Refrain]

3 Falt’ring never, never doubting,
Ours the victor’s crown shall be,
We shall stand in glory shouting,
“Ours the victory.” [Refrain]
