1 In the battle-field of life,
Christian, take thy place;
When thy foes before thee rise
Meet them face to face.
Onward march! onward march!
Cross of Christ thy sing;
Forward march! forward march!
Vict’ry shall be thine!
2 Raise thy banner high and free,
Christ shall lead thee on,
Safe thro’ all the storm of war,
Till the vict’ry’s won. [Refrain]
3 Clad in armor of the Lord,
Ready for the foe,
Shield and breast-plate strong and sure,
Onward, Christian, go! [Refrain]
4 See, thine enemies approach,
Armies of the world!
Meet them bravely, meet them well,
With thy flag unfurled! [Refrain]
5 Onward, Christian, for the war,
Join the noble fight;
Christ shall lead the army forth,—
Battle for the right! [Refrain]
