Lyrics

Church of God we’re on the way to the second advent day.
Onward in the faith we go, claiming victory o’er the foe.
Every challenge we will meet; We will not concede defeat.
Christ our champion is the King; Let The Church Triumphant sing!

Chorus
Obstacles aplenty every day, but the lord will guide us along the way.
By the grace of God we will overcome; Overcoming is victory.
When the labor’s over we will be with our lord and Savior eternally.
We will live forever triumphantly; ‘Overcoming is victory’!

We are striving for the goal to preach the gospel to every soul;
Reaching every distant land, telling of salvation’s plan.
Satan’s plot is to deceive all who would in Christ believe
Still the church by faith will be marching on to victory!

Chorus
Obstacles aplenty every day, but the lord will guide us along the way.
By the grace of God we will overcome; Overcoming is victory.
When the labor’s over we will be with our lord and Savior eternally.
We will live forever triumphantly; ‘overcoming is victory’!

Troubled waters are ahead, but God is with us as He said.
Mountains loom on left and right, Still we trust our Lord of might.
Persecution draws so near, but with God we have no fear..
With the power to part the sea He will lead us to victory.

Chorus
Obstacles aplenty every day, but the lord will guide us along the way.
By the grace of God we will overcome; Overcoming is victory.
When the labor’s over we will be with our lord and Savior eternally.
We will live forever triumphantly; ‘overcoming is victory’!

God is our faithful guide. For the church He will provide
Fire by night to light the way, a pillar of cloud throughout the day.
When we reach our promised home, saints will meet around the throne
Shouting out “the victory’s won”! “Hallelujah! We’ve overcome”!

Chorus
Obstacles aplenty every day, but the lord will guide us along the way.
By the grace of God we will overcome; Overcoming is victory.
When the labor’s over we will be with our lord and Savior eternally.
Shout aloud together triumphantly ‘overcoming is victory’!
‘Overcoming is victory’!
‘Overcoming is victory’!
Overcoming is victory’!
