    Verse 1
    Oft in danger, oft in woe,
    Onward, Christians, onward go;
    Fight the fight, maintain the strife,
    Strengthened with the Bread of Life.

    Verse 2
    Shrink not, Christians: will ye yield?
    Will ye quit the painful field?
    Will ye flee in danger's hour?
    Know ye not your Captain's power?

    Verse 3
    Let your drooping hearts be glad;
    March in heavenly armour clad:
    Fight, nor think the battle long;
    Soon shall victory tune your song.

    Verse 4
    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.

    Verse 5
    Onward then to glory move,
    More than conquerors ye shall prove;
    Though opposed by many a foe,
    Christian soldiers, onward go.
