Representative Text

1 We are a little pilgrim band,
Trav’ling on, trav’ling on;
We are a happy pilgrim band,
Gayly trav’ling on.

Refrain:
On to the shores of the Beulah land,
The happy land, the heavenly land;
On to the shores of the Beulah land,
The happy Beulah land.

2 We are a little soldier band,
marching on, marching on;
We are a fearless soldier band,
Bravely marching on. [Refrain]

3 We are a little working band,
Toiling on, toiling on;
We are a busy working band,
Gladly toiling on. [Refrain]

4 We are a little Christian band,
Hoping on, praying on;
We are an earnest Christian band,
Hoping, praying on. [Refrain]
