Go forward, Christian soldier,

Beneath his banner true!

The Lord himself, thy Leader,

Shall all thy foes subdue.

His love foretells thy trials;

He knows thine hourly need;

He can with bread of heaven

Thy fainting spirit feed.

Go forward, Christian soldier!

Fear not the secret foe;

Far more o'er thee are watching

Than human eyes can know:

Trust only Christ, thy Captain;

Cease not to watch and pray;

Heed not the treacherous voices

That lure thy soul astray.

Go forward, Christian soldier!

Nor dream of peaceful rest,

Till Satan's host is vanquished

And heaven is all possessed!

Till Christ himself shall call thee

To lay thine armour by,

And wear in endless glory

The crown of victory!

Go forward, Christian soldier!

Fear not the gathering night:

The Lord has been thy shelter;

The Lord will be thy light.

When morn his face revealeth,

Thy dangers all are past:

O pray that faith and virtue

May keep thee to the last!
