HYMN 12: Onward, Christian Soldiers!

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 In 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.
Loudly raise your anthems!

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
Constants will remain.
Gates of hell can never
’Gainst the Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise,
Which can never fail.

Onward, then, ye people!
Join our happy throng.
Blend with our voices.
In the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor
Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.


Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept you as my Lord and personal savior. I believe in my heart that you died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank you, Lord, for saving me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
