The Young People's Army

Representative Text

1 March along together firm and true,
For lo, the world is ever watching you;
Be brave and bold upon the battle-field,
Determined that the foe shall yield.
Long and loud the bugle-call is sounding!
Sin and wrong are everywhere abounding,
“Forward!” all along the line resounding,
Bids us march away.

Refrain:
March along together firm and true,
For lo, the world is ever watching you;
Be brave and bold upon the battle-field,
Determined that the foe shall yield.

2 On we go with armor shining bright,
With sword in hand to battle for the right;
United in the service of the Lord,
We’re marching at our Captain’s word.
Valiant soldiers of the Lord are leading,
Earnestly for help the church is pleading,
Slowly backward see the foe receding,
Forward march today. [Refrain]

3 True as steel, and loyal to our King,
We’ll fight until the shouts of vict’ry ring
From north to south, from east and from the west,
Till Christ is everywhere confessed.
Storm the forts of sin and desolation;
Soldiers brave, renew your obligation,
And with earnest pray’r and supplication,
Forward march today. [Refrain]
