Raise the stand­ard of the Lord on high,
Bring the ban­ner of sal­va­tion nigh;
Forward, Chris­tians, shout­ing vic­to­ry,
Victory! Victory! This the song shall be.


On! On! With His ban­ner o’er us,
On! On! Je­sus goes be­fore us.
On! On! Raise the hap­py cho­rus,
On! On! Where­so­e’er He sends us,
On! On! God above de­fends us,
On! On! Vic­to­ry at­tends us
Everywhere we go.

Joyful be our hearts, our lives be bright,
Pressing on­ward in the Sav­ior’s might;
Courage, Chris­tians, heed the Cap­tain’s call,
Victory! Vic­to­ry! Peace and joy for all.


Take the mes­sage un­to all the earth,
Let the na­tions know the Gos­pel worth;
Hasten with the news that God is love;
Victory! Vic­to­ry! Com­eth from above.
