Representative Text

1 Christian, onward! Christ is coming,
Wake the hour of jubilee;
Nations waiting for the message
Onward, Christian, victory!
Hell's proud cohorts almost vanquished,
Vanquished for eternity.

2 Hear the cry of distant nations,
Hear the call to you and me:
Come and lift the fallen sinner,
Help from Satan's wrath to flee.
Christian, onward! Christ is coming,
Wake the hour of jubilee.

3 Then with strength and courage ever,
Gird the gospel armor on;
Faithfully we'll press the battle
Till the victory is won.
Christian, onward! Christ is coming,
Wake the hour of jubilee.

4 Onward, onward, ever onward,
Be our watchword in the fray,
Bear the banner bravely forward,
Let there be no more delay.
Christian, onward! Christ is coming,
Wake the hour of jubilee.
