Verse 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!
Verse 2: Crowns and thrones may perish, Kingdoms rise and wane, But the Church of Jesus Constant will remain; Gates of hell can never ‘Gainst that Church prevail; We have Christ’s own promise, And that cannot fail.
Verse 3: 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 thru countless ages Men and angels sing.
Chorus: Onward, Christian soldiers! Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before.
