Marching on to victory

Full Text

1 We are marching forth to battle,
With our banners all unfurled;
We have joined the Christian army
For the conquest of the world;
And the sign by which we conquer
Over each and ev'ry foe,
Is the cross of Christ uplifted
By the vanguard as we go.

Marching on, ever on,
Where the cross of Christ we see,
Marching on, ever on,
Marching on to victory.

2 Forward now, oh, loyal legion,
To the fiercest of the fight,
Let us never fear or falter
In the battle for the right,
For the cross of Christ moves onward
in a cause that cannot fail,
And the power of Christ, our Leader,
Is a power that must prevail. [Chorus]

3 Not for earthly thrones or kingdoms,
Not for earthly wealth or fame,
Do we wage the Christian warfare
In the Lord's all-conquering name,
But to rescue souls in peril
From the power of death and sin,
And the glory all unfading
Of a heavenly crown to win. [Chorus]
