1 On, marching on, while another year returning
Bids us again rejoice;
Borne on the breeze, hear the music of the sprint-time
Waking every heart and voice.

Marching, marching, swell the happy chorus;—
Marching, marching, forward still we go;
Joy, joy today scatters beauty all around us,
Merry streams of gladness flow.

2 On, marching on, from the Sunday School we gather,
Trained for the world’s great field;
On, marching on, in the ranks of our Redeemer,
He will be our strength and shield. [Refrain]

3 Still marching on, may our army, ever faithful,
Work till our life is done;
Then, with the brave in the fields of life eternal,
Shout the glorious vict’ry won. [Refrain]
