Knight of the Holy Grail
Frederick J. Waugh (1861–1940)

Soldiers of Christ, march on,
March on in armor clad,
With shield and buckler girded strong,
With battle cry most glad.


March on, march on, march on, march on,
With banner and with song, with song,
And as we march we sing His praise,
To whom all praise belongs, belongs.

Not steel, thy buckler strong,
Thy helmet and thy shield,
But right­eous­ness and faith in God
A mightier power can wield.


Then, soldiers brave, march on,
March on to vic­to­ry;
Sin overthrown, right triumphing,
With patience we shall see.
