We are marching to a land above,
Beautiful land above, beautiful land above;
To a land where dwells eternal love,
The beautiful land above.
And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
While our glorious captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
We are marching to a land above,
Beautiful land above, beautiful land above;
To a land where dwells eternal love,
Beautiful land above, land above.

We are marching toward the city fair,
Beautiful city fair, beautiful city fair;
Where the angel anthems fill the air,
The beautiful city fair.
And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
While our glorious captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
We are marching toward the city fair,
Beautiful city fair, beautiful city fair;
Where the angel anthems fill the air,
Beautiful city fair, city fair.

We are marching to the home of God,
Beautiful home of God, beautiful home of God;
And our guidebook is His holy Word,
The beautiful Word of God.
And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
While our glorious captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.
We are marching to the home of God,
Beautiful home of God, beautiful home of God;
And our guidebook is His holy Word,
Beautiful Word of God, Word of God.
