Representative Text

1 Like an army we are marching,
In the service of the Lord;
Marching onward to the vict'ry
He has promised in his word.

Marching, marching,
Marching brave and strong,
Like an army we are marching,
While we sing our happy song.

2 Like an army we are marching,
With our banners, day by day,
Looking ever unto Jesus,
Trusting him to guide our way. [Chorus]

3 Like an army we are marching,
From the Sunday-school we come;
Trained to follow our Commander,
Till he brings us safely home. [Chorus]

4 Like an army we are marching,
Many trials tho' we meet,
We shall count them scores of blessings,
When we rest at Jesus' feet. [Chorus]
