Representative Text

1 March, march along; let us gladly sing,
Telling the love of our Saviour King;
Happy in Him, let our songs arise,
Swelling the music beyond the skies.

March, march along with triumphant song,
Joining the hosts of the ransomed throng;
Singing the joy of a Saviour’s love,
March, march along to the home above.

2 March, march along; let His banner wave,
Mighty is Jesus, the strong to save;
Strong to defend us when foes appear,
Trustfully follow, for help is near. [Chorus]

3 March, march along; stepping side by side,
Helping each other, in peace abide;
“Christ and His church” is the cry we raise,
His is the kingdom, the power, and praise. [Chorus]
