Cheerfully marching on

Representative Text

1 Cheerfully marching on toward the beautiful golden gate,
Cheerfully on, cheerfully on;
Cheerfully marching on;
Yes, Cheerfully marching on toward the beautiful golden gate,
Cheerfully on, chanting our song,
Cheerfully marching on.

Refrain:
Steadily marching on,
Ever His praise prolong,
Marching to join the chorus of the beautiful ransom’d throng,
Joyfully marching on,
Lifting our hearts in song,
Marching to glory, we are marching home.

2 Joyfully singing ever as we’re nearing the golden gate,
Joyfully sing, joyfully sing,
Joyfully ever sing,
Yes, Joyfully singing ever as we’re nearing the golden gate,
Joyfully sing, praise to our King;
Joyfully ever sing. [Refrain]

3 Hopefully marching on toward the beautiful golden gate,
Hopefully on, hopefully on;
Hopefully marching on;
Yes, Hopefully marching on toward the beautiful golden gate,
Joyfully on, hopefully on,
Cheerfully marching on. [Refrain]
