Full Text

1 As a pilgrim band bound for Canaan’s land,
We are marching home, we are marching home;
Jesus is our King, of His love we sing,
As we’re marching, marching home.

Refrain:
Marching onward, ever onward,
To a country fair and bright,
Marching onward, ever onward,
Where the Lamb will be our light.

2 With our Captain near, all the way to cheer,
We are marching home, we are marching home;
Tho’ our foes assail, they can ne’er prevail,
As we’re marching, marching home. [Refrain]

3 With our Friend who guides thro’ whate’er betides,
We are marching home, we are marching home;
And we trust in Him when the way grows dim,
As we’re marching, marching home. [Refrain]

4 With the crown in view all the journey thro’,
We are marching home, we are marching home;
And the blessed prize shines beyond the skies
As we’re marching, marching home. [Refrain]
