Representative Text

1 March along together,
Ever firm and true;
Many eyes are watching,
Taking note of you.
If the day be cloudy,
If the skies be bright,
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!

2 Raise on high your banner,
That its folds may fly
Like the wing of eagle,
Sweeping to the sky.
If you wish to conquer
Ev’ry foe you fight,
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!

3 Of your heav’nly Father
Strength and courage seek;
Swords are to no purpose,
If the heart be weak.
Ev’ry arm endowing
With a warrior’s might,
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!

4 Love should be your motto,
Duty be your aim;
Ever overcoming
Till a crown you claim.
For a fame undying
Strive with all your might;
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!
Keep to the right, boys,
Keep to the right!
