Onward Christian Soldiers

CCLI Number: 5011625

Give me my belt, Your truth surrounding me
Give me my breastplate, righteousness in my heart
Give me my shoes, the gospel of Your peace
Give me my shield, protection is my faith
Give me my helmet, Your seal of salvation
Give me my sword, it is The Word of God wo-oh
The word of God, wo-oh

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

We do not fight against the natural
We come against evil and wickedness
Give us the strength to always stand our ground
Fight the good fight, fighting with all our might, wo-oh
With all our might, wo-oh

We stand, we stand
Stronger in Your love
We stand we stand!
We stand, we stand
When everything is done
We stand, we stand!
