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.

Refrain:
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]
