1. Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the word of Jesus going on before,
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle, see His banners go.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching at to war,
with the word of Jesus going on before.
2. Like a might army moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we;
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.
3. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
but the Church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never against that Church prevail;
We have Christ's own promise, which can never fail.
4. 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 ages men and angels sing.
