    We Are Marching On to Glory

    Vigorously

    1. We are marching on to glory;

    We are working for our crown.

    We will make our armor brighter

    And never lay it down.

    [Chorus]

    We are marching, marching homeward

    To that bright land afar.

    We work for life eternal;

    It is our guiding star.

    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.

    [Chorus]

    We are marching, marching homeward

    To that bright land afar.

    We work for life eternal;

    It is our guiding star.

    3. Then, with the ransomed children

    That throng the starry throne,

    We will praise our Lord and Savior,

    His pow’r and mercy own.

    [Chorus]

    We are marching, marching homeward

    To that bright land afar.

    We work for life eternal;

    It is our guiding star.
