Full Text

1 Victory thro’ Jesus!
Oh, catch the word divine,
Pass it quickly onward
Along the battle line;
Write it on our banner,
Proclaim it as we go;
Victory thro’ Jesus!
Our watch-cry here below.

Refrain:
Victory! victory! shout it o’er and o’er!
Victory! victory! praise forevermore;
Praise to God the Father, in ev’ry land adored,
Who giveth us the victory thro’ Christ our Lord.

2 Victory thro’ Jesus!
Our Victor over sin,
He himself has promised
The faithful soul shall win;
Long may be the contest,
And hard the work to do:
Only look to Jesus,
His grace will bring us through. [Refrain]

3 Forward then, ye soldiers,
Behold our Leader near!
Sound again the watch-cry,
That all the world may hear:
Victory thro’ Jesus!
To those who faithful prove;
Victory thro’ Jesus!
And crowns of life above. [Refrain]
