Representative Text

1 We come, we come with hearts so full of love
For Him who died and ever lives above;
The glad refrain our happy voices raise,
O listen to our song of praise.

We’ll live for Jesus ev’ry day,
We’ll do His will let come what may,
At home, at school, at play,
We’ll live for Him.

2 We’ll march right on and singing as we go,
We’ll live each day our Savior’s love to show;
At home at school wherever we are found,
We’ll let our songs of love abound. [Refrain]

3 Rejoice, rejoice, for Jesus is our Friend,
He’s with us now and will be to the end;
He’ll guide our feet in paths of peace and love
And lead us to our home above. [Refrain]
