1 There’s a glad song rings throughout the world today,
It is victory! it is victory!
To the conquest of the cross we haste away;
It is victory for our King!

Refrain:
God is for us, who can be against us?
Rally, Christian soldiers, rally at his call;
In his name shall victory attend us,
Satan’s armaments before us yield and fall;
God is for us: victory is near!
God is for us: falter not, nor fear!
God is for us: cheer, my comrades, cheer!
Victory for our King!

2 “Peace on earth, goodwill to men” he brings to all,
It is victory! it is victory!
Prison doors swing wide, and iron fetters fall;
It is victory for our King! [Refrain]

3 He shall reign from sea to sea, and shore to shore,
It is victory! it is victory!
Every mortal tongue confess his sov’reign pow’r;
It is victory for our King! [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 >
