Onward, Christian soldiers

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!


At the sign 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.
Refrain:
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.
Refrain:
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 believ├Ęd,
that I believe too.
Long as earth endureth,
men the faith will hold,
kingdoms, nations, empires,
in destruction rolled.
Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!


Crown 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.
Refrain:
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 through countless ages
men and angels sing.
Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!
