Representative Text

1 We are marching along, singing as we go,
We shall win, conquer sin, vanquish ev’ry foe;
Gladly marching along in the Savior’s might,
We shall surely gain the day for truth and right.

Onward, onward, joyfully, day by day,
Never fearing, guided along the way;
Hoping, trusting, Jesus we will obey,
From hour to hour he gives us pow’r, to gain a victory.

2 We are marching along, tho’ the world may jeer,
Braving ill, onward still, we’ve no need to fear;
Gladly marching along heeding Christ’s command,
In His name we quickly go to take the land. [Refrain]

3 We are marching along, victory is sure,
Join our band, lend a hand, faithfully endure;
Gladly marching along to a home above,
Keep from harm each moment by a Savior’s love. [Refrain]
