1 Christian soldiers, onward go!
Jesus' triumph you shall know;
fight the fight, maintain the strife,
strengthened with the bread of life.

2 Join the war and face the foe!
Christian soldiers onward go;
boldly stand in danger's hour,
trust your captain, prove his power.

3 Let your drooping hearts be glad,
march in heavenly armour clad;
fight, nor think the battle long
soon shall victory be your song.

4 Sorrow must not dim your eye,
soon shall every tear be dry;
banish fear, you shall succeed
great your strength if great your need.

5 Onward, then, in battle move!
more than conquerors you shall prove;
though opposed by many a foe
Christian soldiers, onward go!
