1. Onward, Christian soldiers!Marching as to war,With the cross of JesusGoing on before.Christ, the royal Master,Leads against the foe;Forward into battle,See his banners go!
(Chorus)Onward, Christian soldiers!Marching as to war,With the cross of JesusGoing on before.
2. At the sign of triumphSatan's host doth flee;On, then, Christian soldiers,On to victory.Hell's foundations quiverAt the shout of praise;Brothers, lift your voices,Loud your anthems raise.
3. Like a mighty armyMoves the Church of God;Brothers, we are treadingWhere the Saints have trod.We are not divided;All one body we:One in hope and doctrine,One in charity.
4. Onward, then, ye people;Join our happy throng.Blend with ours your voicesIn the triumph song:Glory, laud, and honorUnto Christ, the King.This through countless agesMen and angels sing.
