“Going Forward at Christ’s Command”

“GOING FORTH AT CHRIST’S COMMAND”

Going forth at Christ’s command

To each darkened, heathen land;

With the Gospel’s glorious light

We invade the darkest night.

 

Going forth at Christ’s command

Join we now the soldier’s band;

Fighting for lost souls in sin,

We must march if we’re to win.

 

Going forth at Christ’s command

We His church fight to expand;

Gates of Hell shall not prevail,

We will win as we assail.

 

Going forth at Christ’s command

‘Gainst the foe on every hand;

Christ the Lord bestows His might:

“Up, ye saint, go forth and fight!”

 

Going forth at Christ’s command

Till we reach Heav’n’s peaceful land;

Trophies at His feet we’ll lay,

Christ, in turn, will thus repay.
