Representative Text

1 Come with hearts and voices now and sing a gospel song,
Sing it with a spirit that will move the mighty throng;
Sing it till the world shall hear the echoes loud and long,
While we are marching to glory.

Refrain:
Then hail! all hail! the coming jubilee!
Redeemed from sin, our Jesus make us free;
Now we’ll shout salvation over mountain land and sea,
While we are marching to glory!

2 Gird the gospel armor on and duty’s call obey;
See the host of Satan ready marshaled for the fray;
Going forth to meet them we will watch and fight and pray,
While we are marching to glory! [Refrain]

3 Forward then to battle ‘neath the banner of the cross;
Counting worldly honors at their best as only dross;
Jesus is our Captain, and we ne’er can suffer loss,
While we are marching to glory! [Refrain]
