On, like the true and brave;
In Him, the strong to save,
Our boast shall be;
The world for Christ we sing,
Our high exalted king,
Whose praise from all shall ring
O’er land and sea.

Firm as the hills above
Nor time or change can move,
His Word shall be;
Where sin and death abound,
His truth shall yet resound,
And all shall hear the sound
O’er land and sea.

Soon shall He come to reign,
And from the tyrant’s chain
The world set free;
On realms of deepest night,
The beams of Gospel light
Shall rise in splendor bright
O’er land and sea.
