1 O children, go forward though danger surrounds you,
Though foes press upon you in battle array;
Your Leader is present, and He will protect you,
The vict’ry is certain, you must win the day.

Refrain:
Go forward! Go forward!
Though foes press upon you in battle array,
Your Leader is present, and he will protect you,
The vict’ry is certain, you must win the day.

2 The Lord is your guide, He will ever defend you,
Though sins as a host seek your soul to destroy;
His pillar of fire will surely enfold you,
Your glory and refuge from all that annoy. [Refrain]

3 Then, children, take courage, strike hard for the Master,
A fight is before you, a race to be run;
Let blow follow blow; let each step still be faster,
Christ waits to command you, “good servants, well done.” [Refrain]
