1 Come, ye children, march along,
With a sturdy heart and strong,
With a merry face and song,
To the Savior's kingdom.
Singing, singing on the way,
Singing, singing ev'ry day;
With a merry heart and gay,
Singing on the way.
2 Are temptations in your way?
Fight them bravely day by day;
They will flee from you away,
At a pray'r to Jesus. [Chorus]
3 Are the skies with clouds o'ercast,
Damp and chilly is the blast?
Oh! the sunbeams will at last,
Brighten all for Jesus. [Chorus]
4 Tho' the hours are dark and sad,
Seems there less of good than bad,
Make thyself and others glad,
With a song of Jesus. [Chorus]
