Representative Text

1 Hear the tramp, tramp, tramp of the Sunday-School Brigade,
Whether rain or shine we are always on parade;
By our Savior led, in the sunshine of His love,
We are marching on to the land of joy above.

Refrain:
Marching on, on, on, on to glory
Making known the blessed story;
There is joy, joy, joy for each girl and boy,
In the Sunday-School Brigade.

2 With the cross held high in the blessed gospel light,
Eyes aglow with love, as the sun our banner bright;
Dreading not the storm, fearing not the waiting foe,
Singing songs of praise, on and on with Christ we go. [Refrain]

3 Hear the tramp, tramp, tramp of the Sunday-School Brigade,
We will win that crown that will never, never fade;
We will trust our King, whersoever be the way,
We will follow Him to the realm of endless day. [Refrain]
