A. 3. Not alone we conquer or fall
Each loss or triumph is for all.
Bound by God's far purpose
in one living whole,
move we to the goal.
Forward through the ages,
in unbroken line
of faithful at the call divine.
B. 5. Onward, people, join our throng.
Blend your voices in our song,
Glory laud and honor
unto Christ, the King.
Men and angels sing
Onward, Christian soldiers,
with the cross,
the cross of Jesus going on before.
