Marching with the heroes,
Comrades of the strong,
Lift we hearts and voices
As we march along;
O the joyful music
All in chorus raise!
Theirs the song of triumph,
Ours the song of praise.

Refrain

Marching with the heroes,
Comrades of the strong,
Lift we hearts and voices
As we march along.

Glory to the heroes,
Who in days of old,
Trod the path of duty,
Faithful, wise and bold;
For the right unflinching,
Strong the weak to save,
Warriors all and freemen,
Fighting for the slave.

Refrain

So we sing the story
Of the brave and true,
Till among the heroes
We are heroes, too;
Loyal to our captain
Like the men of yore,
Marching with the heroes,
Onward evermore.
