Representative Text

1 Soldiers of King Jesus, raise the shout again,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
Marching to the music of the glad refrain,
Victory in Jesus evermore.

Victory, victory, victory in Jesus!
Sing His overcoming blood, sing the grace that frees us;
Ring it out more boldly,
Song of faith and cheer,
Till the whole wide world shall hear.

2 O'er the pow'rs of darkness, o'er the hosts of sin,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
Trusting, watching, praying, we shall surely win,
Victory in Jesus evermore. [Refrain]

3 Send the happy watchword all along the line,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
Let all error perish, lives the truth divine
victory in Jesus evermore. [Refrain]

4 for his church and kingdom, for each trusting soul,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
From the courts of heaven joyful pæans roll,
Victory in Jesus evermore. [Refrain]
