1 In the army of the Lord,
We are marching on;
With our faces Zionward,
We are marching on;
Clad in armor always bright,
Ever ready for the fight,
Soldiers of the King of light,
We are marching on.

Marching, onward marching,
Marching onward hand in hand,
Marching to the shining land,
Hallelujah! We are marching on.

2 Serving Jesus day by day,
We are marching on;
Slaying lions by the way,
We are marching on;
Through our Captain, ever strong,
He, our watchword and our song,
All the pleasant way along,
We are marching on. [Refrain]

3 Clinging close to Jesus’ hand,
We are marching on;
Bound for Eden’s shining land,
We are marching on;
For the victors’ palms so bright,
For the crowns and robes of white,
For eternal joy and light,
We are marching on. [Refrain]
