To leave the world below march upward with our band

Representative Text

1 To leave the world below,
March upward with our band,
And step by step we mean to go
To Zion’s happy land.

We’re marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We’re marching onward to Zion, that beautiful city of God.

2 The city we shall see,
The heavenly music hear,
Marching to songs of victory,
With all the Army there.

3 The pearly gates are wide,
The streets are bright and fair;
We’ll march together, side by side,
Till safely landed there.

4 Beside the crystal stream,
Led on by Zion’s King,
We’ll swell the great salvation theme
And songs of victory sing.

5 With blood and fire unfurled
We march to victory grand;
The Army means to lead the world
To Zion’s happy land.
