Lyrics

  1. 1. Onward, Christian soldiers!
    Marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus
    Going on before.
    Christ, the royal Master,
    Leads against the foe;
    Forward into battle,
    See his banners go!
  2. Onward, Christian soldiers!
    Marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus
    Going on before.
  3. 2. At the sign of triumph
    Satan’s host doth flee;
    On, then, Christian soldiers,
    On to victory.
    Hell’s foundations quiver
    At the shout of praise;
    Brothers, lift your voices,
    Loud your anthems raise.
  4. Onward, Christian soldiers!
    Marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus
    Going on before.
  5. 3. Like a mighty army
    Moves the Church of God;
    Brothers, we are treading
    Where the Saints have trod.
    We are not divided;
    All one body we:
    One in hope and doctrine,
    One in charity.
  6. Onward, Christian soldiers!
    Marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus
    Going on before.
  7. 4. Onward, then, ye people;
    Join our happy throng.
    Blend with ours your voices
    In the triumph song:
    Glory, laud, and honor
    Unto Christ, the King.
    This through countless ages
    Men and angels sing.
  8. Onward, Christian soldiers!
    Marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus
    Going on before.
