Original text by JN Holland.

Ah! Sweet victory!
Shine like the sun;
The bright and glorious champion!
Lift the torch of vict'ry's fiery flame
And sing again.
O sweet, sweet victory!
The battle done,
The right and virtuous honor won
So place the wreath upon the victor's brow
And shout aloud,
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!'
Hist'ry's fame will add your name
For now and ever!
Praise to those who overcome,
Triumph of one's own
Adversities and demons won,
No nobler aim,
No harder vanquished foe.
And let Peace reign throughout the Land,
Love will prevail,
Much surer than the tyrant's Hand.
The stars attained,
Through perseverance gained.
The stars attained,
Our victory gained!
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!
Hist'ry's fame can add our names,
For now and ever.
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!
So raise your hands and celebrate
This glorious feat, this glorious date.
All glow within the moment's bliss,
The beauty of sweet Vict'ry's kiss!
Long live this day!
Sweet Victory! Ah!
