Lyrics

Verse 1
Move forward, soldiers of the cross,
Move forward, tho’ you suffer loss;
Lo! Satan’s hosts around you stand,
In Jesus’ name go take the land.

Chorus
Move forward, move forward,
Boldly march against the foe,
Forward, forward,
Forward, go.

Verse 2
Move forward, there is much to do,
By willing soldiers good and true;
With shield of faith and sword in hand,
Go bravely forth to take the land.

Verse 3
Move forward, you shall win the fight,
For God is with the cause of right;
While trusting in his promise grand,
You surely shall possess the land.
