1 We are Christian Soldier Boys,
Doing what we can!
For the right we’ll make a noise!
Each may be a man!
Ev’ry heart is happy now,
We’ll be right instead of wrong,
So we make a greeting bow
While we sing our song!

Refrain:
Let us march, march along,
Up the bright and shining way,
Doing what is right to do,
Like a little solider true!
Let us march, march along,
Up the bright and shining way,
Doing what is right to do,
Like a little pilgrim true!

2 We are Christian Pilgrim Girls,
Happy Pilgrims bright,
Like the pretty dewdrop pearls
Falling in the night,
We won’t wear a “Dunce’s cap.”
We’ll be right instead of wrong,
Hear our hands go clap, clap, clap,
As we sing our song! [Refrain]

3 S-O-L-D-I-E-R,
Soldier, spells, you know,
P-I-L-G-R-I-M,
Pilgrim, ain’t that so?
We’ll repeat it o’er again,
We’ll be right instead of wrong,
See us make the sing for rain
As we sing our song! [Refrain]

4 Little Christian girls and boys,
No humbugs are we;
For the right we’ll make a noise,
Clapping hands with glee!
God will bless us ev’ry one,
If we’re right instead of wrong,
For the sake of His dear Song,
Let us sing our song! [Refrain]
