1 ‘Tis a mighty army, see the banners wave,
Marching on to battle, marching on to save.
Trusting in the Captain, fearless, strong and brave,
Marching in the King’s highway.

Chorus:
Marching on, His flag is floating o’er us,
Marching on, His warriors are victorious;
Shout and sing the Hallelujah chorus,
Marching in the King’s highway.

2 Onward to the conflict, fighting for the right,
Hearts are true and fearless, armor strong and bright;
Up the rugged mountain, scaling ev’ry height,
Marching in the King’s highway. [Chorus]

3 See the foe advancing on the battle field,
Hasten to the rescue with your sword and shield.
With His name to conquer, we shall never yield,
Marching in the King’s highway. [Chorus]

4 O the day of triumph, when the battle’s o’er,
Tenting in the twilight on the Golden Shore!
Fiery darts of Satan we shall fear no more,
Marching in the King’s highway. [Chorus]
