ONWARD TO BATTLE

BATTLE IN THE LORD

INTRO


Onward to battle proclaiming the Lord


March like a soldier that’s going to war;


With the cross of Jesus going on before!



1


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 banner go!



REFRAIN


Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,


With the cross of Jesus going on before!



2


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.



3


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 thro' countless ages men and angels sing.



4


WOMEN


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 Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.


MEN


Yes, let us march in triumph against Satan’s reign


Let us march unto war,


And waving the banner of Jesus Christ,


His nation constant will remain.


The gates of hell can never prevail


The church of Christ


Let us fight, for the Lord with his promise 


we shall never fail, never fail



REFRAIN


Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,


With the cross of Jesus going on before!



FINALE


With the cross of Jesus,


Onward to battle, onward to glory,


With the cross of Jesus


Going on before!



Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen!
