Representative Text

1 We are marching onward in the cause of right,
Bravely on to meet the foe,
We are sure to conquer in Immanuel’s might,
And the hosts of sin o’erthrow.

Then away, march away
‘Neath the glorious banner of our King,
In the home of rest that awaits the blest
By and by the vict’ry we shall sing.

2 In the Sunday school we mass our forces brave,
Whence the gospel trumpet’s sound
That shall tell the nations of His pow’r to save,
Shall be heard the world around. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the wrong we’ll vanquish, and the right shall win,
Ere the fleeting days are past,
And with Him who e’er a conqueror has been,
We shall overcome at last. [Refrain]
