Representative Text

1 We are marching to the fray,
Gladly singing on the way,
For we’re bound to win the day
For the cause of right.
Tho’ the world may interfere
With its scoff and taunting jeer,
We will never, never fear,
For the cause of right.

Refrain:
Marching on with a steady step and true,
Marching on with the coming prize in view;
We’ve enlisted for the fray,
And we’ll surely win the day,
Be the dangers what they may,
For the cause of right.

2 We will never quit the fight,
Tho’ the pathway may be rife,
With the sorrows of this life,
In the cause of right.
Yes, the victory is sure,
If we only will endure,
Nor let Satan us allure
From the cause of right. [Refrain]

3 Proudly then we march away,
Wasting not the hours of day
In the line of idle play,
From the cause of right.
Come and join our happy band,
And for justice take a stand;
Will you come and lend a hand
In the cause of right. [Refrain]
