1. There´s a battle cry being sounded near
By the royal army of the Lord.
Soldiers march to the rhythm of the Lord´s commands,
And this promise that is written in His word.

CHORUS:
We shall overcome, we shall triumph.
We shall stand in the victory as one.
Calvary´s hill´s been conquered by the Lord and King
So the victory is already won.

2. There are times so often in the battle´s rage
When the fighting will light the darkened sky.
That´s the time I focus on the Word of God
And can clearly read the final battle cry.

CHORUS: twice
