Representative Text

1 See the foe advancing like a mighty throng,
Onward to the conquest, raise the battle song;
Never fear the conflict, we will gain the day,
Jesus is our Captain and will lead the way.

Refrain:
Victory! victory! “Forward!” is the cry,
Take the world for Jesus, victory or die;
Victory! victory! raise the banner high,
“Victory and freedom!” shout the battle-cry.

2 Fierce the battle rages, who will gain the day,
Forward, ever, forward, hear the Captain say,
We shall gain the conquest, victory or die;
Victory and freedom; shout the battle cry. [Refrain]

3 Long the conflict wages, courage we shall need,
Ere the foe is vanquished and from win we’re freed;
But we’ll never falter till the battle’s o’er,
Then we’ll shout a “vict’ry” on the other shore. [Refrain]
