Representative Text

1 Pass along the war-cry, soldiers of the Lord;
Gird anew your armor, draw the trusty sword,
March in serried column, shouting as you go,
Victory! victory! over ev’ry foe.

Refrain:
pass along the war-cry,
Victory! victory!
Pass along the war-cry,
Victory! victory!
Pass along the war-cry,
Shout it as you go.
Victory! victory! over ev’ry foe.

2 Fierce the battle rages, deadly is the strife;
But the prize awaits you, “everlasting life.”
Jesus, your Commander, gives you as you go,
Victory! victory! over ev’ry foe. [Refrain]

3 Satan’s hosts are flying, put to utter rout;
Hark! our valiant soldiers raise their battle shout.
Heaven with the echo cheerfully resounds,
Victory! victory! over ev’ry foe. [Refrain]
