1. We are on the road of joy, with a message of good cheer,
Till the Church for Christ has won;
And we travel with the King, and His praises we will sing,
As the march goes on and on;
Every heart is ringing true, and by faith we’re watching, too,
For the perfect day to come;
Oh, we know the time is near, when the sign shall thus appear,
For Christ to lead His loved ones home.

Marching on, on, to tell the glad good news,
That the Lord will come some day;
Marching on, on, to save the world from sin,
And proclaim the joyful way;
Marching on, on, the promises are sure,
He is coming by and by;
We’ll watch and work for Him each day,
Till the clouds shall roll away,
And we shall see Him in the sky.

2. We are on the road of joy, and we’ll meet the Lord somewhere,
Caught with Him up in the air;
For a season there remain and return to earth again,
And with Christ His joys we’ll share;
Every heart is ringing true, and with love is yearning, too,
For the perfect day to dawn;
Oh, the glory that will be, when His face we all shall see,
When Christ on earth shall meet His own. [Refrain]

3. Tell the news to every one that the Savior comes again,
What a joyful theme to sing;
Ring it from the mountain top, and proclaim it in the shop,
To the world this message bring;
Every heart must ring it true, and in faith must live it, too,
Hasten now the perfect day;
For His coming will be soon, He’ll dispel all doubt and gloom,
And we shall reign with Him for aye. [Refrain]
