Onward Christian Soldiers
~ Songbird8 and Salty Toes ~
Onward Christian Soldiers marching as to war.
We esteem the cross of Jesus! It was the cost His true love bore!
For this cause Messiah came: to destroy the works of evil.
As He is, so are we in this world; IN HIS NAME bringing hope to all people.
We are not ashamed of the good news. God Almighty has the power to save!
FREEDOM! … the reward for those who believe and call on Jesus’ name.
Every nation, tongue, and tribe; FOR ALL He willingly sacrificed!
Because of His love, we can lay our guilt there … at Mercy’s bloody cross.
WE were the JOY set before HIM …WE ARE the WHY … HE willingly PAID our cost!
No matter the ugliness of our past; In believing we bow at the foot of His cross.
And in shared joy, we RISE TO FREEDOM! BE FREE! … Free at last to be like Him!
Regardless of our station, color, race, or creed; His blood restores us all equally!
If you’re a guard or prisoner, He will love you the same!
Both Royalty and beggars … the bruised and the lame!
Where we go, ALL CAN GO! Yes, whosoever will!
God's not partial to any. All means ALL still!
This is our confidence, our hope, and our praise.
We can attain perfection! By HIS power, we are raised!
Like the butterfly from its cocoon, raised to a new life of freedom!
In His love to live and move and in His joy to have this new beginning.
So onward Christian soldiers, as we wage war for the souls of men.
Let God be TRUE as we proclaim, “His LOVE CONQUERS evil and sin!”
Boldly we march onward! Humbly we proclaim,
“ALL can be free! None of us need to live our lives as slaves again!”
March through this land, across the world, though evil rage … March on!
By His might, He will win this battle. In Him we are strong … MARCH ON!
In Holy armor, infused with His Spirit; He is the One we rightly trust.
Freedom is our lot! To share this message, NOW we must!
March on in love, Soldiers of the cross, that the world may know and hear!
The Freedom song we joyfully SING, FOR THE SAVIOR we hold so dear!
Note the words in bold: IN HIS NAME, FREEDOM FOR ALL! WE bring JOY to HIM. WE ARE WHY HE willingly PAID our debt so we can RISE TO FREEDOM! BE FREE! ALL CAN GO! TRUE LOVE CONQUERS! MARCH ON NOW, SING FOR THE SAVIOR!
Remember in the old testament battles; The Praisers and Singers were always at the front of the battle as the army marched. This is proof no doubt in the power of praise and a symbol of our reliance and trust that HE will win the battle.
We don’t march with anger and bayonets in hand! Rather we march with love in our hearts, the high praises of God on our lips, and a heart full of gratitude for all he means to us. We march knowing all the while that HE will win the battle as we yield to His great love!
We are told in Psalm 22:3 “God is enthroned on our praise. In John 12:32 Jesus said, “If I am lifted up, ... I will draw all men unto me!
Also ” According to Psalm 22:3, “God inhabits the praises of His people! “ On the Intercessors Arise blog site there is a quote that can bring a great picture to our minds, “When you praise God, He brings a big chair and sits there.”
Hallelujah! March On!!!
