Hymn of the Day
1. 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!
(Victory! victory! rings aloud the battle cry,)
Till the glad echoes reach the vaulted sky, vaulted sky;
(Until the glorious echoes reach the vaulted sky;)
O’er the world be unfurled now His flag from shore to shore;
(Over the world now be unfurl’d His flag from shore to shore;)
Loyal, true, in the ranks each soldier stand, bravely stands,
(Loyal and true, in the ranks each faithful soldier stands,)
Gladly His will obeying in whate’er He commands;
(Gladly obeying in whatsoever He commands;)
He the King, the kingdom His forevermore.
(He is the King, and the kingdom His forevermore.)
2. Pressing on to the battle, each soldier rejoices,
Singing joyfully unto the gracious King,
Earth is joining her praise with tumult of voices,
While the arches of heaven with music ring.
3. 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.
