1 Hark! hark! the trumpet sounding,
Rise at the break of day,
On to the front where sin is abounding,
Forward, the call obey;
Put on the gospel armor,
Go forth in faith to conquer,
Hear, hear the Captain’s words inspiring,
On, soldiers, on to the fray.

Refrain:
Forward, then, with banners waving high,
Forward, as we shout the battle-cry,
Onward in the conflict, hoping, trusting,
On to victory!

2 Marching like valiant soldiers,
Steady our steps and true,
Faith in our Leader, no thought of danger,
Fear and alarm, adieu;
On, though the world oppress thee,
On, though the foe distress thee,
Steadfast and firm, keep moving on till
Fair Canaan’s land stands in view. [Refrain]

3 Then shall the path be brighter,
No more by care oppressed,
Firm in our purpose, true in our motives,
Hoping for what is best;
Trusting the King of glory,
Telling the old, old story,
Waiting the Master’s call to enter
Into the haven of rest. [Refrain]
