I am tired of singing about war in church. Onward Christian Soldiers uses images from the Crusades and why? To stir us emotionally and to get us into action, I suppose. But to act in what way?
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See his banners go!

We are all enlisted till the conflict is o'er;
Happy are we! Happy are we!
Soldiers in the army, there's a bright crown in store;
We shall win and wear it by and by.
