Onward Christian soldiers marching as to




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 name of Jesus
Satanís host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hellís 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.



What the saints established
that I hold for true.
What the saints believŤd,
that I believe too.
Long as earth endureth,
men the faith will hold,
Kingdoms, nations, empires,
in destruction rolled.

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



Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus
Constant will remain;
Gates of hell can never
íGainst that church prevail;
We have Christís 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 honour
Unto Christ the King!
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing:

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



---Alternative verses---


At the sign of triumph
Satanís host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
on to victory!
Hellís 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.
