1 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.

2 Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God;
Christians, we are treading
Where the saints have trod,
We are not divided,
All one body we:
One in hope and one in faith,
One in charity. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]

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
With the angels sing. [Refrain]
