Full Text

1. Underneath the banner of the Lord our King,
Marching to victory today;
Let us as with happy voices now we sing,
Keep step with Jesus all the way.

Keep step with Jesus all the way,
Let us now his voice obey;
While we march steadily on, till the battle we have won,
Keep step with Jesus all the way.

2. Tho' the way be dreary, let us never fear,
While we are marching to the fray;
Never mind the hardships, let us persevere:
Keep step with Jesus all the way. [Chorus]

3. When the battle rages let us onward press,
Shrink not nor falter in dismay;
Crowns of fadeless glory we shall soon possess;
Keep step with Jesus all the way. [Chorus]
