Full Text

1. We are marching thro' the world's great field,
   One in Christ, our strength and shield;
   He will lead us with His own right hand
   To the Blessed Morning Land.
  
   CHORUS.
   Marching onward day by day,
   Marching, marching in the good old way,
   Marching, glory hallelujah,
   We are marching on to-day.
  
2. We are marching, and with joy we sing
   Praise to Him, who reigns our King;
   We are marching in the good old way,
   Onward, forward day by day.
  
   CHORUS.
   Marching onward day by day,
   Marching, marching in the good old way,
   Marching, glory hallelujah,
   We are marching on to-day.
  
3. We are marching to a mansion fair,
   One in Christ, whose name we bear;
   We are marching where the angels bright
   Praise Him ever day and night.
  
   CHORUS.
   Marching onward day by day,
   Marching, marching in the good old way,
   Marching, glory hallelujah,
   We are marching on to-day.
