1 Happy children are marching along,
Keeping time to their martial song;
‘Tis the army of the children’s mighty King,
How their glad young voices ring!
In the army of the King we are marching,
Boldly marching, bravely marching!
Where our Captain goes before,
We will follow evermore,
While we sing our happy song.
For the name of Jesus is our watchword,
While we’re marching, bravely marching;
We are always sure to win
When we fight the hosts of sin,
So we boldly march along.
2 Ever ready to heed his command,
We’re a true hearted, faithful band,
With a purpose firm and strong, and courage high,
“Forward” is our battle cry. [Refrain]
3 Forward marching where’er he shall lead,
Proving faithful in ev’ry deed;
Never falter while his standard we can see,
We shall win the victory. [Refrain]
