Keeping Step Together

Representative Text

1 Keeping step together
In the cause we love,
In the happy service
Of the King above;
May he make us faithful,
To his orders true,
All that he appoints us
Striving still to do.

Keeping step together,
Marching on, marching on;
Keeping step together,
Marching on, marching on;
Keeping step together
In the cause we love,
Singing joyful praises
To the King above.

2 Keeping step together
On the King's highway,
In the help of Jesus
Trusting day by day;
May the grace he's promised
Freely to bestow
Strengthen us for duty,
Lead us as we go. [Chorus]

3 Keeping step together,
Joining heart and hand,
All the ranks united
Make a mighty band;
Helping one another,
Working while we sing,
May our life endeavor
Glorify our King. [Chorus]
