Lyrics

Jesus is calling! Forth to the fray,
In line be falling, serve Him today;
Follow Him ever, call no retreat,
His soldiers never suffer defeat.

Refrain

On to vict’ry, follow your mighty commander,
On to vict’ry, follow where Jesus may go;
On to vict’ry, close to your shield and defender;
On to vict’ry, conquering every foe.

He needs you, brother, do thou His will;
Your place no other ever can fill;
Gird on the armor, take up the sword;
Join your commander, follow your Lord.

Refrain

Morning is coming, night will be past;
Soon will the dawning, break in at last;
Then with the morning, glorious and bright,
Rich crowns adorning, victors of light.
