Representative Text

1 We are workers for the blessed Lord we love,
Marching upward to the kingdom fair above;
Loyal, brave and true, strong His work to do,
Standing firmly on His promise God will help us through.
On to vict’ry, waving high His banner bright,
Faithful soldiers, we shall triumph in the fight;
In His steps we go, facing ev’ry foe,
Lifting up the cross of Jesus, for His love we know.

Chorus:
On with singing, gladness bringing,
Forward go, charge the foe;
Shout, rejoicing, praises voicing,
Conquer we must! Victory thro’ His name we shall know.
On with singing, gladness bringing,
Forward go, charge the foe.
Shout, rejoicing, praises voicing,
Soldiers of Christ into the battle we will go.

2 Battle bravely all the mighty hosts of sin;
Where He leads us we can never fail to win;
Waiting His command, firmly take your stand,
Up and join the royal army, help the Christian band.
Marching, marching! Come and swell the gallant throng!
Firm, united, victory shall tune your song;
Lift His banner high, wave it to the sky,
Yield allegiance to the Master, on His strength rely. [Chorus]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
