Onward Christian Soldiers Lyrics

Onward Christian soldiers! Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle, See, His banners go! 

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the word of Jesus,
Going on before.

At the name of Jesus Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver  At the shout of praise:
Brothers, lift your voices, Loud your anthems raise!

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the word of Jesus,
Going on before.



Like a mighty 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 faith and Spirit, One eternally

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the word of Jesus,
Going on before.

Crowns and thrones may perish, Kingdoms rise and wane;
But the Church of Jesus   Constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never ’Gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, Which can never fail

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the word of Jesus,
Going on before.



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.

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the word of Jesus,
Going on before.
