1. With shield and banner waving bright,
The armies of the Lord
Are marching on, at His command,
To conquer thro’ His Word.

To victory, to victory,
O hear them shout and sing;
To victory, to victory,
For Christ, the Lord, our king.

2. Tho’ sin’s dark host against them rise,
In dread and stern array,
They trust in Him whose mighty arm
To vict’ry leads the way. [Refrain]

3. Thro’ dangers wild and perils deep
Their path to glory lies;
But faith beholds their promised crown
Of triumph in the skies. [Refrain]
