BATTLE IN THE LORD
Loudly unto the world is a chorus resounding,
From the hosts of the Lord as they march along,
Rich in harmony, sending the echoes rebounding,
Swelling mightily from the victorious throng.
Victory! rings aloud the battle cry, battle cry!
Till the glad echoes reach the vaulted sky, vaulted sky;
O'er the world be unfurled now His flag from shore to shore;
Loyal true, in the ranks each soldier stands, bravely stands,
Gladly His will obeying in whate'er He commands;
He the King, the kingdom His forevermore.
Pressing on to the battle, each soldier rejoices,
Singing joyfully unto the gracious King,
Earth is joining her praise with the tumult of voices,
While the arches of heaven with music ring.
Glory! glory to God in the highest forever!
For the King in His beauty shall yet appear;
Shout aloud, for Jehovah, our God, will deliver;
His the battle, and victory draweth near.
