198. Onward, Christian Soldiers

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!

Refrain:
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;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise! [Refrain]

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 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 thro' countless ages
Men and angels sing. [Refrain]
