Representative Text

1 I’ve heard the King’s command, who calls a faithful band
To herald out the gospel story;
I never will retreat, tho’ strong the foe I meet,
I’m marching up the road to glory.

Refrain:
I’m marching up the road to glory, glory, glory,
I’m marching up the road to glory,
I’m marching to the glory-land.

2 The danger may be strong, but I to Him belong,
And tho’ the battle may be gory,
A soldier I’ve become to overcome the wrong,
I’m marching up the road to glory. [Refrain]

3 No traitor can belong to that eternal throng
Whose shout is ever one of vict’ry;
And so by His command I will possess the land,
I’m marching up the road to glory. [Refrain]
