1 We march with glad devotion,
Where Jesus leads the way,—
Our cloudless light thro’ darkest night,
Our shelter thro’ the day.
God is our unfailing stay;
God is our unfailing stay.
2 We march—where many dangers,
And mighty foes appear;
Our only sword our Saviour word,
His cross our banner dear.
God, our strength, is ever near;
God, our strength, is ever near.
3 We march—where saintly heroes,
Have won their best renown,
And sword and flame their faith o’ercame,
To gain their martyr’s crown.
God will never fail his own;
God will never fail his own.
4 We march—where the sweet music,
Of angels cheer us on,
Who guard our way by night and day,
Till all our foes are gone.
God has our redemption won;
God has our redemption won.
5 We march—where Jesus calls us
To Zion’s radiant dome;
And soon or late within the gate,
His ransom’d all will come.
God will bring the children home;
God will bring the children home.
6 We march—in hope rejoicing,
The war will soon be done,
And Christ, our King, the world will bring,
To bow before his throne.
God shall reign, and God alone;
God shall reign, and God alone.
