Representative Text

1. Take up the battle cry all along the line;
You shall gain the victory, victory divine,
With your commander nigh, foes in vain combine;
Raise aloft the banner, let it bear the sign.

Refrain
All the world for Jesus, let the chorus ring;
All the world for Jesus, crown Him King;
All the world for Jesus, let the watchword be
Forward go in Jesus’ name to victory.

2. Truth’s armor you may claim, faith will be your shield;
Fighting on in Jesus’ name, mighty power you wield;
Glory for God your aim, naught can make you yield;
Shout aloud the triumph sure to be revealed. [Refrain]

3. Soldiers, with courage go, go forsaking all;
Onward, then, to meet the foe, soon the foe shall fall;
Send mighty blow on blow—let no fear appall;
In the name of Jesus, sound afar the call. [Refrain]
