Tune: [Marching onward, Christian band]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Marching onward, Christian band,
See the hosts from ev'ry land;
See the tempted and the tried,
Martyred throngs on ev'ry side;
Strong in faith, they know not fear,
Tho' the hoards of sin appear.

2 Hosts on hosts, he has decreed,
Shall from Satan yet be free;
Ye have then great work to do,
Up! brave Christians, ever true;
Christ the watchword still shall be,
With it gain the victory.

3 Onward, then, brave Christian band,
Tho' temptation ye must stand;
Thro' the night of darkness, soon
Ye shall see the morning's bloom
Christ the Sun shall reappear,
Tho' the night be e'er so drear.
