Like an army we are marching,
In the service of the Lord;
Marching onward to the vict’ry
He has promised in His Word.

Refrain

Marching, marching,
Marching brave and strong;
Like an army we are marching,
While we sing our happy song.

Like an army we are marching,
With our banners, day by day;
Looking ever unto Jesus,
Trusting Him to guide our way.

Refrain

Like an army we are marching,
Many trials tho’ we meet;
We shall count them naught but blessings,
When we rest at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain
