Lyrics

Take up the battle cry
All along the line;
You shall gain the victory,
Victory divine,
With your commander nigh,
Foes in vain combine;
Raise aloft the banner,
Let it bear the sign.

Refrain

All the world for Jesus,
Let the chorus ring;
All the world for Jesus,
Crown Him King;
All the world for Jesus,
Let the watchword be
Forward go in Jesus’
Name to victory.

Truth’s armor you may claim,
Faith will be your shield;
Fighting on in Jesus’ name,
Mighty power you wield;
Glory for God your aim,
Naught can make you yield;
Shout aloud the triumph
Sure to be revealed.

Refrain

Soldiers, with courage go,
Go forsaking all;
Onward, then, to meet the foe,
Ssoon the foe shall fall;
Send mighty blow on blow—
Let no fear appall;
In the name of Jesus,
Sound afar the call.
