1 We have heard the cry resounding from the East and from the West,
Calling valiant men to serve our King, of all the kings the best;
We enlist to bravely battle till the nations are possessed,
For Christ, our Great Command, for Christ, Immanuel.

Refrain:
Shout hosanna, Christ victorious!
See His banner proudly waving over us!
Sin and error fall before us,
For Christ is leading on;
Sin and error fall before us,
For Christ is leading on.

2 In the annals of the world behold the writings of His word;
In the epoch-making battles see the flashing of His sword;
God is swiftly crushing Satan thro’ the strength of Christ the Lord;
Sin’s mighty host shall tremble, for vengeance is our God’s.[Refrain]

3 Ere the word of Christ shall fail Him, heav’n and earth shall pass away;
So for oneness of believers we will work, and watch, and pray;
We shall see and share the vict’ry of that glad triumphant day,
When Christ shall conquer Satan, and come in peace to reign.[Refrain]

4 Onward then, ye Christian soldiers, with the truth that makes men free,
From the mountains and the prairies to the islands of the sea;
Unto God shall be the glory, unto faith the victory!
All hail the name of Jesus, all hail Immanuel! [Refrain]
