Full Text

1 Like an army we are marching
Under a banner grand and glorious,
Ev’ry soldier true and loyal
In the service of the King.
Forward ever on to battle,
Following Christ, who goes before us,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp, moving onward,
While the victor’s song we sing.

Refrain:
Like an army with banners flying,
Against the hosts of sin we march, march away!
Souls in bondage of sin are dying;
“They must and shall be free!” rings the war-cry today,
“They must and shall be free!” rings the war-cry today.

2 Sin and error are appalling!
Perishing souls are all around us;
Heathen nations on before us
For the gospel watch and pray.
Nothing daunted, nothing fearing,
Joyfully onward to the rescue,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp, moving onward,
Where our Savior leads the way. [Refrain]

3 Many dangers lie before us,
Wearisome marches, sorrows, losses;
Heavy burdens, lonely vigils
To be kept by day and night;
Yet determined and united,
Sharing alike in cares and sorrows,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp, moving onward,
Upward to the land of light. [Refrain]
