Representative Text

1 ‘Neath the royal banner of the King Immanuel,
The hosts are marching, are onward marching;
Well armed by faith to do good service for the One they love so well;
The hosts are marching, yes, marching on.

Refrain:
Singing the gospel story;
Beneath its banner we march to glory,
To glory, singing the gospel story,
Beneath its banner we’re marching on.

2 Going forth to battle in Jehovah’s mighty name,
The hosts are marching, are onward marching;
Unto all those who walk in darkness they His wondrous love proclaim;
The hosts are marching, yes, marching on. [Refrain]

3 Ever looking forward to that happy home above,
The hosts are marching, are onward marching;
Forever safe from harm and danger ‘neath His shelt’ring arms of love;
The hosts are marching, yes, marching on. [Refrain]
