Lyrics

We are little soldiers marching,
In the service of our king;
Forth to battle we are pressing,
While our happy voices sing.

Refrain

Forward, soldiers!
In our leader’s name we go.
Forward, soldiers!
Now advancing,
Let us triumph o’er the foe.

Bravely ’gainst the wrong we’re fighting,
Christ, our captain, leads the way.
Trusting Him, we’ll surely conquer,
Fierce and hot tho’ be the fray.

Refrain

Banners flying, voices shouting,
Praises to our Savior king,
On to victory we are marching,
Hear the joyous watchword ring.
