Representative Text

1. We’re marching home to Canaan’s land,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
And soon we’ll join the angel band,
Marching in the beautiful light of God.

Refrain
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the beautiful light of God.

2. We’re marching nearer day by day,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
To that sweet home where loved ones stay,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

3. Come march with us to Canaan’s shore,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
To dwell with Christ forevermore,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

4. Around the shining throne we’ll meet,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
And cast our crowns at Jesus’ feet,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

5. Then to a mansion bright and fair!
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
The angels will attend us there,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]
