Lyrics

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.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, 
with the cross of Jesus going on before. 
 
At the signs 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.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, 
with the cross of Jesus going on before. 
 
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.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, 
with the cross of Jesus going on before. 
 
Crowns and thrones my perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain;
Gates of hell can never 'gainst the church prevail; 
we have Christ's own promise, and that cannot fail.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, 
with the cross of Jesus going on before. 
 
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 thro' countless ages men and angels sing.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, 
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
