1 Onward, Christian solders,
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 banner go!

Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2 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;
Christians, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise! [Refrain]

3 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 doctrine,
one in charity. [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
earth and angels sing. [Refrain]
