Representative Text

1 We are marching thro’ the world with our colors now unfurled,
And together we will sing the happy chorus;
While we hasten to the strife on the battle field of life,
With the Saviour’s royal banner floating o’er us.

We are marching, we are marching,
Ever joyful as we go;
And the song we gladly sing is of Christ our coming King,
While His royal banner still is waving o’er us.

2 We are marching onward still His commandments to fulfill;
And to labor for His kingdom—our endeavor;
Pressing onward at His call, we shall never, never fall;
But be victor’s thro’ our Leader now and ever. [Refrain]

3 We are marching day by day, in the strait and narrow way;
Telling out the joyful tidings of salvation;
This the message we proclaim in our blest Redeemer’s name,
“There is pardon full and free for every nation.” [Refrain]
