We Are Marching On to Glory

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. We are marching on to glory;

    We are working for our crown.

    We will make our armor brighter

    And never lay it down.

  2. [Chorus]

    We are marching, marching homeward

    To that bright land afar.

    We work for life eternal;

    It is our guiding star.

  3. 2. Then day by day we are marching;

    To heaven we are bound.

    Each good act brings us nearer

    That home where we’ll be crowned.

  4. 3. Then, with the ransomed children

    That throng the starry throne,

    We will praise our Lord and Savior,

    His pow’r and mercy own.

Text and music: John M. Chamberlain, 1844–1930
