Representative Text

1 Like an army we are moving
Steadily, and at command,
Thro’ a strange and hostile country,
To a better, brighter land;
Full equipped, courageous, loyal,
With the gospel firmly shod,
We are marching on to glory,
To the city of our God.

With a firm determination,
And a trust that shall not wane,
For the King we have enlisted,
And are marching in His train;
Our song of joy is ever ringing,
While moving up the great highway
To a city bright, eternal,
In a land of cloudless day,
To a city bright, eternal,
In a land of cloudless day.

2 Many foes concealed about us,
Would invade our ranks today,
And with subtile agitation,
Seek to turn us from the way;
But our Leader, on before us,
All their secret cunning knows,
And His wisdom is forever
Proof against the chief of foes. [Refrain]

3 In the light our banner gleaming,
Fills the heart with love and cheer,
And the voice of our Redeemer,
Quiets every doubt and fear;
Shoulder pressed to shoulder ever,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp we move,
Onward, upward to the city
Built for us thro’ Jesus’ love. [Refrain]
