Lyrics

We are children of the King,
And His praises we will sing,
As we journey to our home above—
His banner over us is love!

Refrain

Marching! Marching!
With happy hearts we onward move;
No foe we fear, with our captain near—
His banner over us is love!

He, the glorious Son of God,
Hath the way before us trod;
Over every foe we’ll conqueror prove—
His banner over us is love!

Refrain

Fearless in our leader’s might,
Strong to do and dare the right;
We will journey to our home above—
His banner over us is love!
