1 There are foes that must be conquered,
There are battles we must win;
There are lands that must be taken,
That are going down in sin,
Let us enter in the struggle,
Ever march upon our way,
We must take the world for God and win the day.

Chorus:
On to victory!
On to victory!
On to victory!
The foe must die!
On to victory!
On to victory!
On to victory!
We'll conquer by and by!

2 There are hosts of sin before us
That extend from sea to sea;
There are many still in bondage,
There are slaves that must be free;
Let us all be up and doing,
Ever found within the fray,
We must take the world for God and win the day. [Chorus]

3 There are many dear ones dying,
They are falling ev'rywhere;
Let us bravely go and help them,
They are lost and need our care;
Fall in line, prepare for battle,
Let us fight as well as pray,
We must take the world for God and win the day. [Chorus}
