1 We are marching home to Zion,
We are marching day by day;
We are marching home to Zion,
We are pilgrims on the way;
In the name of God our banners
In the morning light we raise,
And with bursts of glad hosannas
Ev’ry day we end in praise.

Refrain:
Marching onward, marching onward,
Marching onward day by day;
We are marching home to Zion,
We are marching day by day;
We are marching home to Zion,
We are pilgrims on the way;

2 We shall see the King in beauty,
We shall see him on his throne;
He shall shine, a sun in splendor
That a guiding light has shown;
Day by day his grace increases,
Brighter hope sour spirits fill;
Day by day our songs of triumph
Nearer draw to Zion’s hill. [Refrain]
