1 Brave Christian soldiers, gallantly marching,
Joyful and bright, O sing all the way!
Gird on your armor, gird on your armor,
Jesus is leading and you must obey.

Cheerfully marching, faithfully marching,
Jesus will lead you all the bright way,
Joyfully singing, heartily singing,
Lift up your hearts to your Saviour today.

2 Your Captain loves you, tenderly loves you,
Kindly He speaks to all here today;
Lift up your voices, glad anthems raising,
He will be with you and point out the way. [Refrain]

3 March, valiant soldiers, onward to glory,
Hearts ever happy, hearts ever brave;
Jesus will guide you, vic’try awaits you,
Jesus is leading and Jesus can save. [Refrain]
