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.
