Representative Text

1 March along sing a song, sing it merrily,
Children of the King are we;
Bravely fight for the right, right and purity,
Children of the King are we.

Refrain:
Children of the King are we
In His service glad and free,
Marching ‘neath His blood-stained banner on to victory.

2 Banners bright in the light, for Him we will wave,
Children of the King are we;
Voices raise sing His praise, He alone can save,
Children of the King are we. [Refrain]

3 Forward go face the foe, never never fear,
Children of the King are we;
Vict’ry win over sin, Sing your song of cheer,
Children of the King are we. [Refrain]
