Representative Text

1 Beautiful songs we sing unto our Savior King,
Spreading the joys of His wonderful salvation;
Jesus, the Crucified—He is our Friend and Guide,
And with Him we cannot go astray.
Trying to do His will, and His commands fulfill,
Unto His name we will sing with exultation;
Proudly floats our banner o’er us, vict’ry lies before us;
Jesus leading, happy is the way!

Refrain:
Gaily singing, our voices ringing,
We are a happy, happy band of volunteers,
Marching, marching, up the narrow way;
Music swelling, the story telling,
We’ll make the everlasting arches ring with cheers,
Marching, marching, onward day by day.

2 Telling His wond’rous love, pointing to things above,
Scattering sunlight upon a world of sadness;
Doing a kindly deed, sowing the precious seed,
That will yield, at last an hundred fold;
Lifting a brother’s load, pointing him in the road,
Cheering him onward with words of joy and gladness,
Fills the heart with peace and pleasure vain words cannot measure,
And a happiness that is untold [Refrain]

3 Seeking the lambs astray out on the broad highway,
Telling again and again the wond’rous story,
How in a lowly stall, He, for the sins of all,
Slept,—the King, Redeemer, Prince of Peace,
Is a divine employ,—is a delight, a joy,
Filling the heart with His love, the soul with glory!
Now in ev’ry land and nation of the whole creation
Let His praise begin, and never cease. [Refrain]
