1. Hope of Israel, Zion’s army,Children of the promised day,See, the Chieftain signals onward,And the battle’s in array!
[Chorus]Hope of Israel, rise in mightWith the sword of truth and right;Sound the war-cry, “Watch and pray!”Vanquish every foe today.
2. See the foe in countless numbers,Marshaled in the ranks of sin;Hope of Israel, on to battle,Now the vict’ry we must win!
3. Strike for Zion, down with error;Flash the sword above the foe;Every stroke disarms a foeman,Every step we conq’ring go.
4. Soon the battle will be over;Every foe of truth be down;Onward, onward, youth of Zion,Thy reward the victor’s crown.
