"ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS"

[Onward, Christian soldiers, soldiers!]

Verse One:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching on to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before!
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into ba--ttle,
See His banner go!

Chorus:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching on to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!

Verse Two:
At the sign of triumph
Satan's host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell's foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voi-ces,
Loud your anthems raise!

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse Three:
Mighty our great army,
Marching for our God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod.
We are not divided;
All one Body we,
One in hope and do--ctrine,
One in charity.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Onward, Christian, onward, Christian!]

Verse Four:
Onward, then, ye people,
Join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song;
"Glory, laud and honor,
Unto Christ the King!"
This through countless a--ges,
Men and angels sing.

[Repeat Chorus]

With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!

[Onward, Christian soldiers!]
