We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Christian, onward, Christ is coming

Christian, onward, Christ is coming

Author: W. C. John
Tune: [Christian, onward! Christ is coming]
Published in 1 hymnal

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.
