Tramp, tramp, tramp, oh, hear us coming,
Little soldiers of the King,
Flags unfurled and banners flying,
Loudly let our watchword ring.

Refrain

Onward, forward,
Let us march against the foe;
In our leader’s name advancing,
On to vict’ry we will go.

Over vale and hill resounding,
Children hear the mighty call,
Come and join the royal army,
In our ranks there’s room for all.

Refrain

Jesus is our mighty captain,
His command we must obey,
Forward march and never falter,
We shall surely win the day.

Refrain
