W: W:2 W:At the sign of triumph, W:Satan's armies flee; W:On, then, Christian soldiers, W:On to victory. W:Hell's foundations quiver, W:At the shout of praise; W:Brothers, lift your voices, W:Loud your anthems raise. W: W:3 W:Like a mighty army, W:Moves the Church of God: W:Brothers we are treading W:Where the Saints have trod. W:We are not divided, W:All one body we, W:One in hope, in doctrine, W:One in charity. W: W:4 W:Crowns and thrones may perish. W:Kingdoms rise and wane, W:But the Church of Jesus W:Constant will remain. W:Gates of hell can never W:'Gainst that Church prevail: W:We have Christ's own promise, W:And that cannot fail. W: W:5 W:Onward, then, ye faithfull, W:Join our happy throng, W:Blend with ours your voices, W:In the triumph-song: W:Glory, laud and honour, W:Unto Christ the King: W:This, through countless ages, W:Men and Angels sing. % % % % % % % % % %]
