Hymn #487: Onward, Christian soldiers


Change to regular font

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 in to battle,
see his banners go.

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2. Crowns and thrones may perish,
kingdoms rise and wane,
but the Church of Jesus
constant will remain;
gates of hell can never
'gainst that church prevail;
we have Christ's own promise,
and that cannot fail.

(Refrain)

3. Onward, then, ye people!
join our happy throng;
blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song:
'Glory, laud and honour
unto Christ the King!'
This through countless ages
we with angels sing.

(Refrain)
