Representative Text

1 Onward, onward, soldiers of the cross,
Royal banners glow;
Onward, onward, ne’er to suffer loss,
Conq’ring ev’ry foe.

Refrain:
Faith in him shall be our shield,
Forward go, forward go!
Spirit sword we bravely wield,
In his name forward go!
Faith in him shall be our shield,
Forward go, forward go!
Vict’ry’s crown in realms of light awaits us,
Forward, forward go!

2 Onward, onward, loyal hearts and true,
Hark, the clarion call;
Christ our King our courage shall renew,
Crown him Lord of all. [Refrain]

3 Onward, onward, soldiers of the King,
Led by love divine;
Onward, onward list the watchword ring
Triumph in his sign. [Refrain]
