Processionals 530. Onward, Christian soldiers

6.5., 12 lines

St. Gertrude:

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1871

Refrain

Sabine Baring-Gould, 1864

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!

At the sign of triumph

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 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 Christ's 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.

Amen.
