Representative Text

1 Onward, Christian army, 'tis the Lord's command,
Go ye forth and conquer, conquer ev'ry land;
Tell to all the tidings, spread the news around
Of this great salvation where'er man is found.

Chorus:
On, on to victory, 'tis the Lord's command,
On, on to victory, conquer ev'ry land;
Tell them of the Saviour, of the life he gave
That the sons of men eternal life might have.

2 Nations now are burdened with their load of sin,
Satan has dominion, all is dark within;
Go and break their fetters, and their bonds destroy,
Tell them where to find eternal light and joy. [Chorus]

3 Onward, then, till vict'ry shall your efforts crown,
Till the haunts of sin are ev'rywhere cast down;
"All the world for Jesus," shout it o'er and o'er,
Let it ring aloud above the battle's roar. [Chorus]
