Onward Christian Soldiers (Sabine Baring-Gould and Arthur Sullivan) 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, cho: Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war With the cross of Jesus going on before. 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 the Church prevail We have Christ's own promise, and that can never fail. 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, through countless ages, men and angels sing. Note: Yes, that's the same Arthur Sullivan as in Gilbert & RG RG
