1 Ye children of the heav’nly King,
Hear Jesus’ call to you—
Be up and onward! march away,
His soldiers brave and true.
Your foes, unseen, are strong indeed—
Fight ev’ry fault and sin—
Oh! look to Christ in time of need,
And you shall vict’ry win.

Then onward go! yes,—onward go!
Be strong to dare—
go arm’d with pray’r;
Face ev’ry foe—yes, onward go,
Courageous ev’rywhere.

2 Your Saviour gives the shield of faith,
“Salvation’s helmet” true;
His armor wear! fail not to take
The “Spirit’s sword” with you.
Let self be battled day by day—
Put all temptation down—
Then onward go—away—away!—
To win a glorious crown. [Refrain]

3 Walk in the path the Saviour trod,
And win Him volunteers;
So live that you shall honor God
Throughout eternal years.
And you shall evermore rejoice
That victory was won;
That Christ said with approving voice,
My child, “well done—well done!” [Refrain]
