1 In joyful bands we’re marching on,
True, faithful soldiers let us be;
A better day begins to dawn;
We’re marching on to victory!

We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
We’re marching on to victory;
A better day begins to dawn;
We are marching, marching on to victory!

2 Thy kingdom come, O Lord, we pray,
The world from Satan’s bondage free;
May truth and right soon win the day;
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

3 The gospel banner soon shall wave
O’er ev’ry land, on ev’ry sea;
So onward press, ye brave and true,
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

4 Come, let us join the glad refrain,
That glorious day the world shall see;
Hosanna! swell the joyful strain,
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

5 And when the day at last is won,
We’ll join the general jubilee;
All glory give to God’s dear Son;
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]
