Representative Text

1 Onward, Christian soldier,
Onward to the fight,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right!
Hold the cross for Jesus,
As your banner high,
Never must you falter,
Never must you fly.

Chorus:
Onward, Christian soldier,
Onward to the fight,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right;
Hold the banner firmly,
Hold the banner firmly,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right.

2 Jesus Christ, your Saviour,
Says that you must win,
If ye do His bidding,
Look for strength to Him;
Clad in heav’nly armor,
You’ll o’ercome the foe,
Triumph o’er the tempter,
Jesus tells you so. [Chorus]

3 Then when warfare’s over,
When the fight is done,
When the foes are vanquish’d,
When the victory’s won,
Laying down your armor,
Clad in snowy white,
You shall reign with Jesus
In eternal light. [Chorus]
