Lyrics

Verse 1
Loudly unto the world is a chorus resounding,
From the hosts of the Lord as they march along,
Rich in harmony, sending the echoes rebounding,
Swelling mightily from the victorious throng.

Chorus
Victory! rings aloud the battle cry, battle cry!
Till the glad echoes reach the vaulted sky, vaulted sky;
O’er all the word be unfurled now His flag from shore to shore;
Loyal, true, in the ranks each soldier stands, bravely stands,
Gladly His will obeying in whate’er He commands;
He the King, the kingdom His forevermore.

Verse 2
Pressing onto the battle, each soldier rejoices,
Singing joyfully unto the gracious King,
Earth is joining her praise with the tumult of voices,
While the arches of heaven with music ring.

Verse 3
Glory! glory to God in the highest forever!
For the King in His beauty shall yet appear;
Shout aloud, for Jehovah, our God, will deliver;
His the battle, and victory draweth near.
