We are ever marching on

Full Text

1 We are ever marching on,
Happy ranks of volunteers;
Each equipped with youthful zeal;
Boldly fighting doubts and fears
Christ, the King, who leads us on,
Endless life for all has won;
Now for him we dare and do;
We are soldiers brave and true.

2 We are ever marching on,
Halting not in all the plain;
We have foes to overcome, -
Many trophies here to gain.
Gladly we will face the strife,
To obtain eternal life, -
To receive our Lord's "well done,"
When the battle shall be won.

3 We are ever marching on,
Youthful hearts with faith are strong;
In our Leader we confide,
Singing now the victor's song:
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
For the hopes of blest reward,
And beside the crystal sea
Wave our palms of victory.
