1 With martial tread we go, with Christ, our risen King;
A band of faithful foll’wers, we shall stand for Him.
Our song of praise shall ever rise,
A mighty chorus to the skies,
And on, on, on we march, till vict’ry’s crown we wear.
We march with martial tread,
Our King is just ahead;
We’ll love and serve the Christ
Till time shall be no more.
2 With martial tread we go, with Christ, our risen King;
His mighty kingdom, ruled by love, on earth shall be.
We’re marching tow’rd that blissful day,
As on we go thro’ life’s long way;
With joy, joy, joy, great joy, his face we soon shall see! [Chorus]
3 With martial tread we go, with Christ, our risen King;
We e’er shall stand for ev’ry good, right loyally.
His “armor-bearers” we would be,
To love and serve him faithfully;
So on, on, on we’ll march, thro’ all eternity. [Chorus]
