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.

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]
