Representative Text

1 Precious tidings we hear,
Both from far and near,
And our hearts are glad today;
For in God is our trust,
And succeed we must;
None His mighty arm can stay.

Speed the day, happy day,
When the wrong shall fail, and the right prevail;
Speed the day, happy day,
Speed the happy, happy, happy day.

2 Tho' the foe may be strong
To uphold the wrong,
We will never doubt or fear;
But will urge on the fight,
And maintain the right,
Till the wrong shall disappear. [Refrain]

3 Then to God let us raise
Loudest songs of praise,
For the work already done;
And if faithful we prove,
In His courts above
We shall sing of victory won. [Refrain]
