1. We’re soldiers in the army of the Lord, our king;
Let us gladly sing, let our voices ring!
We’re marching on to victory with our banner bright,
On the side of right, and the Lord’s our light!
At the call of duty we will forward go,
With our master, Jesus, ’gainst the bravest foe;
With Him as our commander, this we surely know,
That we’ll conquer in His name.

Refrain
Then march, march forward with the Lord, our king;
Then march, march forward, let us gladly sing;
Our watchword Forward! let our voices ring!
All faith in Jesus Christ our king.
Then march, march forward with the Lord, our king;
Then march, march forward, let us gladly sing;
Our watchword Forward! let our voices ring!
All faith in Jesus Christ our king.

2. We’re marching with our banner floating in the air;
See! ’tis pure and fair, Jesus’ name is there!
And while we’re pressing onward with our courage strong,
If the way is long, cheer it with a song.
If we strive to do our master’s bidding here,
We will win the battle, trust Him, never fear!
Then sing in loud hosannas to that name so dear,
Glorify our Lord and king! [Refrain]
