If you know Max­well’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


We are march­ing to that land,
Happy land so fair,
Where we’ll see our bless­èd Lord some day;
In that land of peace and love,
Free from pain and care,
With the Sav­ior we shall dwell for aye.


March along with a song,
To that bright, beau­ti­ful shore;
There we’ll sing to the King,
Safe at home for­ev­er­more.

March along to glo­ry land,
Always liv­ing right,
Trusting in the Lord to lead the way;
In His ten­der, lov­ing care,
Walking in the light,
Going to a land of end­less day.


Jesus bids us fol­low on,
Al the bless­èd way,
If we want to live with Him up there;
Won’t it be a hap­py time,
When we hear Him say,
March into the ci­ty bright and fair?
