March to the battlefield, march on with sword and shield;
March on; the foe shall yield to Christ our king.
Onward, ye faithful band, onward at His command;
Onward, nor halting stand, but loudly sing.

Refrain

This is the victory, this is the victory,
This is the victory, we sing by the way;
This is the victory, this is the victory,
This is the victory, and faith gains the day.

Stand firm against thy foes; stand, though a host oppose;
Stand! well our leader knows our conflicts all.
Fear not, He says to thee, Fear not, but valiant be,
Fear not, but trust in Me; the foe must fall.

Refrain

Fight, though thy foes increase; fight, till the dawn of peace;
Fight, till the war shall cease, then shout and sing.
Shout, then triumphantly, shout, shout the victory;
Shout, Glory be to Thee, O Lord, our king!

Refrain
