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.
