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.
