Onward, Christian soldiers, 
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!
Christ, the royal Master,
leads again 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!

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! (Refrain)


‚ÄčLike 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. (Refrain) 

Onward Christian Soldiers

Ephesians Chapter 6

11 Put on the whole armour of God,

that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Worship Suggestion:

The sound file is looped.

1. As the song plays the first time, (During Verse 1)

make remarks which bring to mind that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers." This scripture is quite fitting for exactly this time in which we live - 2018.

2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3) Read Ephesians 6: 10 - 18. Let the song end.

3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1 - 3 together. 

‚Äč4. Prayer and Meditation.
