1 Hark! hark! the trumpet sounding,
Rise at the break of day,
On to the front where sin is abounding,
Forward, the call obey;
Put on the gospel armor,
Go forth in faith to conquer,
Hear, hear the Captain’s words inspiring,
On, soldiers, on to the fray.

Forward, then, with banners waving high,
Forward, as we shout the battle-cry,
Onward in the conflict, hoping, trusting,
On to victory!

2 Marching like valiant soldiers,
Steady our steps and true,
Faith in our Leader, no thought of danger,
Fear and alarm, adieu;
On, though the world oppress thee,
On, though the foe distress thee,
Steadfast and firm, keep moving on till
Fair Canaan’s land stands in view. [Refrain]

3 Then shall the path be brighter,
No more by care oppressed,
Firm in our purpose, true in our motives,
Hoping for what is best;
Trusting the King of glory,
Telling the old, old story,
Waiting the Master’s call to enter
Into the haven of rest. [Refrain]
