Hymn/Song Information

Much in sorrow oft in woe Onward Christian onward




Oft in sorrow, oft in woe,
Onward, Christian, onward go:
Fight the fight, maintain the strife
Strengthened with the Bread of life.


Onward Christians, onward go,
Join the war, and face the foe;
Faint not: Much does yet remain,
Dreary is the long campaign.


Shrink not, Christians will ye yield?
Will ye quit the painful field?
Will ye flee in dangerís hour?
Know ye not your Captainís power?


Let your drooping hearts be glad:
March in heavenly armour clad:
Fight, nor think the battle long,
Victory soon shall be your song.


Let not sorrow dim your eye,
Soon shall every tear be dry;
Let not fears your course impede,
Great your strength, if great your need.


Onward then in battle move,
More than conquerors ye shall prove;
Though opposed by many a foe,
Christian soldiers onward go.


---Alternative verses---


Onward Christian, onward go!
Join the war, and face the foe;
Will you flee in danger's hour?
Know you not your captain's power?


Much in sorrow, oft in woe,
Onward, Christian, onward go:
Fight the fight, maintain the strife
Strengthened with the Bread of life.


Much in sorrow, oft in woe,
Onward, Christians, onward go ;
Fight the fight, and, worn with strife,
Steep with tears the Bread of Life.


Let your drooping heart be glad:
March in heavenly armour clad:
Fight, nor think the battle long,
Soon shall victory tune your song.


Let not sorrow dim your eye,
Soon shall every tear be dry;
Let not woe your course impede;
Great your strength, if great your need.
