Lyrics

Learning how to fight
Keeping Christ in sight,
We are singing, joy-bells ringing,
Marching in the light.

Refrain

Training, learning,
God’s dear will to do;
Singing, clinging,
Little soldiers true.

Jesus is our guide,
He is at our side;
He defends us, courage lends us,
True we shall abide.

Refrain

If we conquer sin,
Keeping pure within,
Winning glory with His story,
Life-crown we shall win.

Refrain

In a happy place,
With the saved by grace,
Carols raising, Jesus praising,
We shall see His face.
