Representative Text

1 The temperance cause is moving on,
Our State and nation shall be free;
A better day begins to dawn:
We’re marching on to victory!

We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
We’re marching on to victory;
A better day begins to dawn,
We are marching, marching on to victory.

2 Thy kingdom come, O Lord, we pray;
‘Tis coming soon, the world shall see;
God save our homes, we cry today,
While marching on to victory. [Refrain]

3 The temperance banner soon shall wave
From north to south, from sea to sea;
With earnest step, ye true and brave,
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

4 We soon shall join the glad refrain:
“The land we love at last is free!
Hosanna! swell the joyful strain!”
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

5 The crowning work will soon be done;
God speed the coming jubilee!
Behold, the day is almost won!
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]
