Representative Text

1 Onward soldiers, onward to the fray,
Christ your Leader bids you win the day;
Courage strong to battle with the foe,
Never falter, on to vit’ry go.

Refrain:
Shouting the triumph over ev’ry foe,
While you onward go,
Look to Jesus watch and pray,
Surely you shall win the day.

2 Onward soldiers hasten to the field,
Marching bravely with the sword and shield;
With your armor gleaming in the light,
You shall conquer in your Leader’s might. [Refrain]

3 Onward soldiers over mount and plain,
Christ victorious be your glad refrain;
Lifting high the standard of the cross
That shall never, never suffer loss. [Refrain]
