Onward, soldiers! onward today!Christ our Leader calls us away;Quickly hasten forth to the field,March with sword and shield.
“Forward, forward,” thus saith the Lord,Fear not, faint not, trust in his Word:He will guard us, He will defendTill the strife shall end.
Onward, soldiers! make no delay;Hear the orders, hear and obey;On to victory, on let us go,Braving every foe.
Onward, soldiers! on for the right,Let our banners wave in the light;Soon the victor’s song we will sing,“Praise to God our King.”
