Representative Text

1 Sing a song of triumph,
As we onward go;
Jesus shall be victor
Over ev’ry foe.
Satan shall be vanquished,
And from shore to shore
Jesus Christ shall reign as
King and Conqueror.

Refrain:
Our God is marching on to certain victory,
Let all the world His name adore;
An everlasting kingdom His shall surely be,
His reign from sea to sea, and shore to shore.
Our God is Marching on to certain victory,
The triumph son exultant sing;
His glorious name in ev’ry land shall honored be,
And all the world shall crown Him King.

2 Sing a song of triumph,
Crowning day is near;
In the clouds of glory
Christ shall soon appear,
Coming in like manner
As He went away,
And with joyful hearts we
Antedate the day. [Refrain]

3 Sing a song of triumph,
Swell it loud and long;
Right shall be victorious
Over ev’ry wrong.
Join the conqu’ring army,
Jesus leads the way;
Swiftly we are hast’ning
Tow’rd the crowning day. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
