Biblical Promises by God

Christian Soldier 

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.

Light Horse Art
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!

Military Art
At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!

Military Image
Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
Brothers lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

Christian Soldiers
Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.

Military Image
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Christian Soldier
What the saints established that I hold for true.
What the saints believèd, that I believe too.

Christian Image
Long as earth endureth, men the faith will hold,
Kingdoms, nations, empires, in destruction rolled.

Christian Illustration
Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain.

Military art
Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

Army Artwork
Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.

Lest we forget
Glory, laud and honour unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages men and angels sing.
