Marching With the Heroes

Representative Text

1 Marching with the heroes,
Comrades of the strong,
Lift we hearts and voices
As we march along;
O the joyful music
All in chorus raise!
Theirs the song of triumph,
Ours the song of praise.

2 Glory to the heroes,
Who, in days of old,
Trod the path of duty,
Faithful, wise and bold;
For the right unflinching,
Strong the weak to save,
Warriors all and freemen,
Fighting for the slave.

3 So we sing the story
Of the brave and true,
Till among the heroes
We are heroes, too;
Loyal to our Captain
Like the men of yore,
Marching with the heroes,
Onward, evermore.
