1 Forward, and follow the Lord our King!
Forward, His banner shall vict’ry bring!
Onward, with standards of light unfurled!
We follow the King, the King of the world.

Refrain:
On, we’re marching on,
For lo, the banner of the Lord our King is o’er us;
Then ever on, we’re marching on,
For by His vict’ry we shall more than conqu’rors be;
On, we’re marching on,
For lo, the banner of the Lord our King is o’er us;
Then ever on, we’re marching onward,
Beneath the banner bright, the banner bright,
The standard of the royal, Saviour King.
Forward, and follow the Lord our King!
Forward, His banner shall vict’ry bring!
Onward, with standards of light unfurled!
We follow the King, the King of the world.

2 Forward, and follow the Lord of all!
Forward, O list to the heav’nly call!
Onward, for foes shall be downward hurled!
We follow the King, the King of the world. [Refrain]

3 Forward, and follow the royal Son!
Forward, His warfare and work are done!
Onward, till victory’s flags are furled!
We follow the King, the King of the world. [Refrain]
