Victory is coming! send the word along;
Let the glorious banner wave on high!
Satan’s hosts are trembling,
Right must vanquish wrong,
Victory is coming by and by!

Refrain

Join, ye Christian warriors,
In a glad, triumphant song!
Let the nations hear us as we march along!
Never rest nor falter, banish sin and wrong,
Victory is coming by and by!

See our hosts advancing! hear our happy song;
See our shields of faith all gleaming bright!
New recruits are joining as we march along;
Leaving all to battle for the right.

Refrain

Victory is coming! peace will follow soon,
Bringing joy eternal in its smile;
What a vast array will stand before the throne,
When the captives join our rank and file.

Refrain
