Keep step in the march for the truth

Representative Text

1 Keep step in the march for the truth and right-
Keep step in the march, keep step!
Be strong in the strength of the Lord, our might-
Keep step in the march, keep step!

Chorus:
Keep step! keep step!
(Keep step for the right, by day and by night,)
Keep step in the march, keep step! (keep step!)
Turn never aside, but with zeal and with pride
keep step in the march, keep step!

2 Keep step at the front of the moving line-
Keep step in the march, keep step!
Keep step where the cross is the blazing sign,-
Keep step in the march, keep step! [Chorus]

3 Keep step with a tread that is firm and true-
Keep step in the march, keep step!
There's need in the ranks of the Lord for you-
Keep step in the march, keep step! [Chorus]
