Lyrics

We’re marching forward brave and strong,
We’re fighting ever ’gainst the wrong;
Our watchword grand shall be our song,
On, on, for Jesus!

Refrain

On with flying banners!
On with glad hosannas!
Jesus Christ is leading on,
Leading on to victory;
On with flying banners!
On with glad hosannas!
Jesus Christ is leading on,
Leading on to victory.

The sins within, and those without,
We’re pledged to conquer and to rout;
They fall as we our war cry shout,
On, on for Jesus!

Refrain

Faith is our shield, protecting, true,
Hope gives us ever strength anew,
The love of God will bring us through,
On, on for Jesus!
