Lyrics

We are little pilgrims,
Happy on our way,
Traveling on the road
That leads to endless day;
Walking in the path where
Angel feet have trod,
Marching to the temple,
The temple of God.

Refrain

Marching to the temple,
Marching to the temple
Marching to the temple,
The temple of God;
Lifting high our banner,
The banner of our Lord,
Marching to the temple,
The temple of God.

We are little soldiers,
Fighting for the Lord,
Girded with His armor,
Trusting in His Word;
Fighting in the field where
Angel feet have trod,
Marching to the temple,
The temple of God.

Refrain

We are little Christians,
Singing on our way,
Working in God’s vineyard,
Toiling day by day;
Leading in the path where
Angel feet have trod,
Others to the temple,
The temple of God.
