On-ward, Christian sol-diers!  Marching as to war,

With the word of Je-sus Go-ing on be-fore,

B                  E                           A
Christ, the roy-al Mas-ter, Leads a-gainst the foe;

A                                       B
For-ward in-to bat-tle, See His banners go!

E                 B         C#        F#7         B7
Bro-thers, we are tread-ing Where the saints have trod,

B             E                     A
We are not di-vid-ed, All one bod-y we,

A                                        B
One in hope and doc-trine, One in char-i-ty.



E                      B7                         E
Crowns and thrones may perish, King-doms rise and wane,

E                 B      C#        F#7     B7
But the Church of Je-sus Con-stant will re-main,

Gates of hell can nev-er ‘Gainst that Church pre-vail,

A                                              B
We have Christ’s own pro-mise, Which can never fail.


E                B7                       E
On-ward, then ye peo-ple!  John our happy throng,

E                    B       C#     F#7      B7
Blend with ours your voic-es In the tri-umph song,

B                 E                        A
Glo-ry, laud, and hon-or, Un-to Christ the King,

A                                          B
This thro’ countless a-ges Men and an-gels sing.
