612 ~ Onward, Christian Soldiers!



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!


Refrain

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.


2

Like a mighty army
Moves the church of God;
Christians, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided,
All one body we,
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.


3

Crowns and thrones have perished,
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,
That can never fail.


4

Onward, then, ye people!
Join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song;
Glory, praise, and honor
Unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
