1 March steadily onward to the battle-field away,
Haste! follow our Leader, let one and all his voice obey;
Oh, march steadily onward, let the ranks be filled today,
March under the banner of the Saviour.
March hopefully onward, our colors displaying,
No longer delaying our place at once to fill;
No evil can harm us, no danger alarm us
While to the Saviour faithful still.
March steadily onward to the battle-field away,
Haste! follow our Leader, let one and all his voice obey;
Oh, march steadily onward, let the ranks be filled today,
March under the banner of the Saviour.

2 March steadily onward like the armies gone before,
Wear bravely the armor, the shield that once on earth they wore;
Oh, march steadily onward will our life’s great work is o’er,
March under the banner of the Saviour.
March trustingly onward through sorrow or gladness,
Through sunshine or sadness with joy our way pursue;
Our hearts will be lighter our path will grow brighter
Walking with Jesus firm and true.
March steadily onward like the armies gone before,
Wear bravely the armor, the shield that once on earth they wore;
Oh, march steadily onward will our life’s great work is o’er,
March under the banner of the Saviour.

3 March steadily onward to the conquest here below,
March steadily onward, nor let us fear to meet the foe;
But march steadily onward, shouting vict’ry as we go,
March under the banner of the Saviour.
March joyfully onward, whatever befall us,
Till Jesus shall call us, and say our work is done;
Keep step to the chorus of millions before us,
Soon will our glorious crown be won.
March steadily onward to the conquest here below,
March steadily onward, nor let us fear to meet the foe;
But march steadily onward, shouting vict’ry as we go,
March under the banner of the Saviour.
