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!


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 voices, loud your anthems raise.


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 hope and doctrine, one in charity.


What the saints established that I hold for true.
What the saints believ├Ęd, that I believe too.

Long as earth endureth, men the faith will hold,
Kingdoms, nations, empires, in destruction rolled.


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, and that cannot fail.


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 let men and angels sing.


Then onward Christian soldiers - and with His Word prevail

Keep buried deep within your heart; with Him WE CANNOT FAIL.!!!.

  1. Amen! How many know we are in a spiritual battle- ' For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world–rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. ' Eph. 6:12
    The mentality of many Christians is not a mindset of being in a battle. We may be ridiculed, mocked,& martyred - are we above our Master? If they persecuted Him, will they not also persecute us?

  2. Time is so very short and for those of us who are heading toward our 'golden' years or have already arrived we must feel the urgency of sharing the gospel message.

    We MUST preach, proclaim and pray The Word of God. This army needs to get off its blessed assurance and get moving - WITH HIM, WE CANNOT FAIL.!!.
