Representative Text

1 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Sword in hand, bravely stand for the right today;
Rally ‘round our standard, sound the battle cry,
Lift the cross of Jesus, wave its banner high.

Refrain:
Forward, Christian soldiers, trusting in the Lord,
Leading on to victory;
Hallelujah! we shall sing, hallelujah to the King!
Leading on to victory.

2 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Bold and strong, wake the song, rank by rank today;
See the foe advancing, hear the trumpet-call;
Steady now and fearless, forward, one and all. [Refrain]

3 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Lo! a star from afar, shines for us today;
‘Tis our Royal Master, bending from the skies,
To His faithful servants reaching forth the prize. [Refrain]

4 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Look above, crowns of love, wait the promised day;
Follow our Commander till the war is past,
Then, with Him in glory, live and reign at last. [Refrain]
