Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.@1 Corinthians 15:57

Frank H. Shaul, 1916 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Marching on to battle ’gainst the hosts of wrong,
Following our Captain with a happy song,
Heeding not the many who are loit’ring by,
For victory is nigh, yes, victory is nigh.

Refrain

Victory is nigh! yes, victory is nigh!
Shout with voice triumphant to the vaulted sky;
Victory is nigh! yes, victory is nigh!
We will win the battle for the King on high.

Shouting loud hosannas as we onward go,
With determination sin to overthrow;
Satan’s hosts are trembling, foes before us fly,
For victory is nigh, yes, victory is nigh.

Refrain

Volunteers are wanted, hear the Master say,
Will you be enlisted in the mighty fray?
Ev’ry Christian answer, saying, Here am I,
Then victory is nigh, yes, victory is nigh.

Refrain

Faithful to your duty, halt not by the way,
Keep the banner floating for the King alway,
Great reward He’ll give His soldiers by and by,
For victory is nigh, yes, victory is nigh.
