1 Ev’ry day the sunbeams
Brighten some one’s face;
Ev’ry day the song-birds
Cheer some lonely place;
Ev’ry day our Father
Sends us blessings true;
Faithful are His mercies,
Ev’ry moment new.

Refrain:
Marching on, on, on, while we sing His praise;
Jesus will be with us “all the days;”
Marching, on, on, on to our Home above,
Singing, singing of our Savior’s love.

2 Ev’ry day our Captain
In His wisdom leads,
Giving grace sufficient,
Caring for our needs;
Ev’ry day His Spirit
Will our lives control,
If we give Him entrance
To our inmost soul. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry day His children
May to others bring
Cups of living water
From the heav’nly spring;
In His smile is sunshine;
In His voice a song;
Look and find Him with you,
Tender, true and strong. [Refrain]
