Onward Christian Soldiers Misc. Gospel
[G]Onward Christian [D]soldiers, [D7]marching as to [G]war,
With the cross of [Em]Jes[D]us [A7]going on [D]before!
[D7]Christ the royal [G]Master, leads against the [C]foe;
Forward into [Am]battl[C]e, s[Am]ee H[C]is banne[Am]r go! [D]
[G]Onward Christian [D]soldiers,
[D7]Marching as to [G]war,
With the [C]cross of [G]Jes[Em]us
[C]Going [D]on be[G]fore!
At the sign of triumph Satans host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory.
Hells 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 Christs own promise and that cannot fail.
Onward, then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honour unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages men and angels sing.
