English Hymn 72
Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
Looking unto Jesus, who is gone before.
Christ the Royal master leads against the foe;
For- ward in- to battle see His banners go.
On- ward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
Loo- king un- to Je- sus, who is gone be- fore.
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!
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.
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.
