1. 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 cross of Jesus,
          Going on before.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
