1 We are marching hand in hand,
Thro’ the land, thro’ the land,
Jesus’ happy little band,
Happy little band.

Oh, we are a loyal band,
Loyal band, loyal band,
Clinging close to Jesus’ hand,
Close to Jesus’ hand.

2 On we march with sweet accord,
Near our Lord, near our Lord,
And His smile is our reward;
Oh, we love our Lord. [Chorus]

3 All the lions in our way
We will slay, we will slay,
As we tread the narrow way,
Tread the narrow way. [Chorus]

4 We will conquer by and by,
If we try, if we try,
With dear Jesus ever nigh,
Conquer by and by. [Chorus]
