1 Forward go, the Lord is calling, calling to the battle field;
Up! arise, and gladly haste to gird the armor on;
Fear you not, His glorious strength shall be your sword and shield;
Bravely fight until the day of victory shall dawn.

Refrain:
Forward! forward to battle for the right;
Forward! forward!
Till the world for Christ is won.
Forward! forward!
A glorious beacon light!
Shoulder to shoulder, help to bring
The world to Christ our King!

2 Forward go, and falter not, for mighty is the wiley foe;
Faithful be, although the battle rages fierce and long;
Never yield, but trust in God for He will grace bestow,
An at last you shall defeat the pow’r of sin and wrong. [Refrain]

3 Forward go with faith and song, whatever may thy way betide,
And to Christ, you leader, ever true and loyal be;
Trust and pray, His mighty arm thro’ dangers safe will guide;
Forward go, for He will lead you on to victory. [Refrain]
