1 We are marching onward, soldiers of the Lord,
Clad in shining armor, with the Spirit’s sword;
As our host advances, Satan must retreat,
For our conq’ring army never knows defeat.

Refrain:
Onward, onward, facing toward the foe!
Upward, upward, steadily we go!
Christ, the Lord, our army shall command,
Marching to the promised land!

2 Dangers may surround us close on every side;
Under fairest colors, lurking foes may hide;
Forward, ever forward, moves our fearless host,
In the name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the cross that leads us; lift it up on high!
‘Neath its royal standard we will fight and die.
Enemies assail us, we are undismayed;
All the angel legions are with us arrayed. [Refrain]

4 Earthly crowns and scepters yield at last to rust;
Earthly thrones and kingdoms crumble into dust;
Deathless kingdoms wait us, soldiers of the Lord,
Crowns of fadeless glory will be our reward. [Refrain]
