Representative Text

1 We’re a band of happy children,
And our Leader true and bold,
Yes, our Leader true and bold,
Is the Prince of that fair country
Just beyond the gates of gold.

We are marching, forward, forward marching,
With our banner bright, our banner bright unfurled;
We are following, following, following our Leader
On to save a dying world.

2 Marching onward, ever onward,
To the land of light afar,
To the light of light afar;
To the fair and glorious city
Just beyond the gates ajar. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ we’re little, we are valiant,
We obey our Captain’s call,
We obey our Captain’s call;
And we’ll halt not in our marching
Till the rebel standards fall. [Refrain]
