1 List the music pealing; hear our song of might;
We are marching onward to the land of light;
Come and join the banner, under which we go,
Christ the Lord is captain, and we fear no foe.

Duty is our watchword, faith our only shield,
And to Satan’s legions never will we yield.
List the music pealing, hear our song of might;
We are marching onward to the land of light.

2 Gracious is our Savior, to His children true;
And whate’er the danger, He will lead us through;
"Love ye one another," is our Lord’s command;
"Charity" the motto of our pilgrim band. [Refrain]

3 When our march is ended, and the night draws near,
Brightly through the darkness will His face appear;
Join us, all ye people, hear our loving call,
In our faithful army there is room for all. [Refrain]

Mary Jane Matthews, married C. M. Smith; married A. S. Barnes, 1883; married Charles Kendall Adams, 1890. She has written verses in the leisure of her happy life. First her hymns sang themselves from her heart and then her poems caroled their way from her soul. Few of her classmates in Packer Institute, where she was for the most part educated, knew that the popular Mary Mathews was not American born and a Brooklyn girl. Her birthplace was Ireland and her ancestry Irish. She is the author of thirty or more known hymns, many of them incorporated in song books of a score of more songs and ballads, several of which have been set to music, and are familiar favorites, and of many lyrics and sonnets.
