Representative Text

1 O, we are little soldiers, in the army of the Lord,
Standing in the ranks or marching forward at His word,
We’ll follow Him where’er He leads, for He the way doth know,
Marching in His footsteps, we to vict’ry go.

Refrain:
We are marching, we are marching,
In the army of the Lord,
We are marching, we are marching,
In the army of the Lord.

2 Tho’ we are little soldiers, there is much that we can do,
Jesus needs good soldiers, and He needs the children too,
And though we’re only little ones, we’ll do our very best,
Brave and loyal, we will try to stand each test. [Refrain]

3 We’ve Jesus for our Captain, and He leads us day by day,
See His banner overhead, ‘tis pointing out the way,
Then march along in steady line, and let the watchword ring,
Onward, ever onward, with our Lord and King. [Refrain]
