Lyrics

Soldiers of King Je­sus,
Raise the shout again,
Victory in Je­sus, vic­to­ry!
Marching to the mu­sic
Of the glad re­frain,
Victory in Je­sus ev­er­more.

Refrain

Victory, vic­to­ry, vic­to­ry in Je­sus!
Sing His ov­er­com­ing blood,
Sing the grace that frees us;
Ring it out more bold­ly,
Song of faith and cheer,
Till the whole wide world shall hear.

O’er the pow’rs of dark­ness,
O’er the hosts of sin,
Victory in Je­sus, vic­to­ry!
Trusting, watch­ing, pray­ing,
We shall sure­ly win,
Victory in Je­sus ev­er­more.

Refrain

Send the hap­py watch­word
All along the line,
Victory in Je­sus, vic­to­ry!
Let all err­or per­ish,
Lives the truth di­vine,
Victory in Je­sus ev­er­more.

Refrain

For His church and king­dom,
For each trust­ing soul,
Victory in Je­sus, vic­to­ry!
From the courts of Hea­ven
Joyful pae­ans roll,
Victory in Je­sus ev­er­more.
