Victory is on the Lord's Side.
Arise, ye saints, arise!
The Lord our Leader is:
The foe before his banner flies,
And victory is his.
2 We soon shall see the day
When all our toils shall cease;
When we shall cast our arms away,
And dwell in endless peace.
3 This hope supports us here;
It makes our burdens light:
'Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer,
Till faith shall end in sight: --
4 Till, of the prize possessed,
We hear of war no more;
And ever with our Leader rest,
On yonder peaceful shore.
Thomas Kelly, 1803.
