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 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

Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the Cross of Jesus
Going on before

3
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 in doctrine
One in charity

Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the Cross of Jesus
Going on before

4
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

Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the Cross of Jesus

What the saints established
That I hold for true
What the saints believèd
That I believe too
Long as earth endureth
Men the faith will hold—
Kingdoms nations empires
In destruction rolled

Crowns 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

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
