Lyrics

With foot­steps firm and cour­age strong,
And Je­sus as our guide,
We’ll march to war and vic­to­ry,
For no harm can be­tide.

Refrain

We’ll march to war,
With Christ our guide,
We’ll march to war,
We’ll march to vic­to­ry.
We’ll march to war,
With Christ our guide,
We’ll march to vic­to­ry
With Je­sus as our guide,
We’ll march to war and vic­to­ry.

Too long have sin and Sa­tan held
Their sway o’er God’s own earth,
Too long His king­dom has but been
The land of want and dearth.

Refrain

But now we will go forth and wrest
The prize from Sa­tan’s might,
With hosts of Hea­ven on our side,
We’ll sure­ly win the fight.

Refrain

And when at last the bat­tle done,
And Christ vic­to­ri­ous stands,
O’er all His ran­somed earth will God
Extend pro­tect­ing hands.
