Onward Christian Soldiers | Christian Songs For Kids

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 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 faith and spirit,
One eternally.

Crowns and thrones may perish,
Kingdoms rise and wane;
But the church of Jesus
Constant 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 ours your voices
In the triumph song.

Glory, laud, and honor
Unto Christ, the King.
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
