Oft in sorrow, oft in woe,

onward Christians, onward go.
Fight the fight, maintain the strife

strengthened with the Bread of Life.
Onward Christians, onward go;
join the war and face the foe.
Know that much does yet remain,

dreary is the long campaign.

Let not sorrow dim your eye,

soon shall every tear be dry.
Let not fears your course impede, 

great your strength if great your need.
Onward then in battle move,

more than conquer’rs you shall prove;

though opposed by many foes, 

Christian soldiers, onward go.

Carry on, carry on, with His cross He bears you on.

Arm Thy soldiers, mighty Lord, 

with shield of faith and Spirit’s sword.

Forth to battle may we go 

and boldly fight against the foe;
with banner of the cross unfurled,

His grace renews our groaning world.
His victory won long ago,

onward Christians, onward go…
