Scripture Verse

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. Ephesians 6:12

Christ has need of soldiers,
Brave and staunch and true;
In the front of battle
There’s a place for you;
Ever marching onward
Through a world of sin,
For the heav’nly country
Is the prize we win.


Onward! soldiers of the cross,
Doubting never, trusting ever;
Onward! soldiers of the cross,
Trusting the Lord,
Heeding His Word,
Onward to victory!

Satan would oppose us,
Tempt our souls to stray,
But through Him who loves us
We shall win the day;
Other valiant soldiers
In the ages past,
O’er this upward pathway
Reached their home at last.


Let us then with courage
Press our upward way,
With our gaze on Jesus,
Ever watch and pray;
Blazoned on our banner,
Christ the Lord of all,

While we shout, Hosanna,
Satan’s hosts must fall.
