1 See the host of redeemed ones advancing,
Rolling on like a great, mighty flood;
Shield and sword in the sunlight are glancing,
As they march to the kingdom of God!

Marching on, marching on to the kingdom,
With banner, with shout and with song,
The redeemed of ev’ry land,
A triumphant, happy band,
Marching on to the kingdom of God.

2 At the head of this army victorious
There is One who can know no dismay;
For his march is both onward and glorious,
And triumphant, eternal his sway! [Refrain]

3 Lo! the kingdom of Satan is falling,
And shaken the power of his sway,
For the millions that sin was enthralling,
Are joining the victors today. [Refrain]
