Representative Text

1 There’s a slogan ringing over sea and land,
‘Tis a shout of gladness from the army grand;
For the hordes of sin are being backward hurled
By the King of Glory, who shall win the world.

It is victory! victory!
Heard on ev’ry hand,
Ringing over sea and land;
It is victory! victory! victory!
Ringing over sea and land.

2 It is cheering thousands in the righteous fight,
For it takes the shadows from the dreary night;
And it shows the breaking of the glory day,
When both doubt and error shall be swept away. [Refrain]

3 Let us catch the music of this happy word,
And repeat it daily for our blessed Lord;
For the world shall yet before Him prostrate fall,
Own and crown Him everlasting Lord of all! [Refrain]
