Representative Text

1 March, march away to the world’s great field,
Sing in our hearts, in our hearts rejoicing;
March, march today with our sword and shield,
Armed for the strife and the toil of life.
Far over the deep resounding,
Far over the isles rebounding,
Hear loudly the war cry sounding,
March away, away, steadily march away.

March, march away to the world’s great field,
Sing in our hearts, in our hearts rejoicing;
March, march today with our sword and shield,
Armed for the strife and the toil of life.

2 Haste, no delay, for the foe is nigh,
On, like the true and the brave advancing;
Strong in the strength of the Lord most high,
March, march along with a shout and song.
See, yonder the light is gleaming,
Far over the hills ‘tis beaming,
Down into the vale ‘tis streaming,
March away, away, steadily march away.

Haste, no delay, for the foe is nigh,
On, like the true and the brave advancing;
Strong in the strength of the Lord most high,
March, march along with a shout and song.

3 March to the front with a bold, firm tread,
Trust in the Lord our divine Commander,
Hold to the truth that his word has said,
“I will defend till the war shall end.”
His banner of love is o’er us,
Wake joyfully wake the chorus,
He leadeth the way before us,
March away, away, steadily march away.

March to the front with a bold, firm tread,
Trust in the Lord our divine Commander,
Hold to the truth that his word has said,
“I will defend till the war shall end.”
