1 We’re marching to a land of joy and song,
Singing as we go, singing as we go;
Behold in us a bright and happy throng,
We’re singing as we go.

Refrain:
Our loyal hearts are light as birds in spring,
That in the trees trill out their sweetest lays;
Hallelujah, shout and sing,
To Jesus, Lord and King,
Our highest songs of love and praise.

2 We’re marching in the straight and narrow way,
Singing as we go, singing as we go;
With Jesus close beside us ev’ry day,
We’re singing as we go. [Refrain]

3 His banner we will ever proudly bear,
Singing as we go, singing as we go;
Till ev’ry tongue his praise shall declare,
We’re singing as we go. [Refrain]

4 Our mighty Prince and Saviour we adore,
Singing as we go, singing as we go;
His praises we will tell from shore to shore,
We’re singing as we go. [Refrain]
