Representative Text

1 We are marching on to the Glory land,
We fear no foe before us,
For God, our God with out-stretched hand,
Is ever watching o’er us.

Refrain:
Marching along,
Marching along,
Marching on
To the Glory Land,
We are marching on to a Land of Love,
A united Christian Band.

2 We are marching on to a Land of Light,
With milk and honey flowing,
Where lasting day excludes the night,
And flow’rs are ever growing. [Refrain]

3 We are marching on to a Land of Love,
Where all is joy and gladness,
Our dwelling place in Heav’n above,
Knows naught of gloom nor sadness. [Refrain]

4 We are marching on singing songs of praise,
To him whose love has sought us,
Whose glory shines through endless days,
Whose sacrifice has bought us. [Refrain]
