1 Bugle calls are ringing out,
"Forward" is the battle shout,
See where floats the conqu’ring sign,
Onward to the war divine!

Chorus:
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown,
We shall wear a crown!
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem!
Wear a crown, wear a crown,
Away over Jordan!
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown
In the new Jerusalem!

2 Sound the charge against the foe,
Lay the hosts of error low;
In His name, victorious King,
Let the song of triumph ring! [Chorus]

3 Fight the fight of faith and love,
Looking unto Him above;
Loyal soldiers, do and dare,
Your Commander’s joy to share. [Chorus]
