Who will join our Junior Band?
Singing, gladly singing;
Marching on to Canaan’s land,
Praise to Jesus bringing.

Refrain

Who will join our band today?
Who is ready now to say,
I will walk the narrow way,
Singing, gladly singing.

Soldiers of the cross are we,
Singing, gladly singing;
Faithful would we ever be,
Praise to Jesus bringing.

Refrain

By a loving Savior led,
Singing, gladly singing;
Brighter grows the path we tread,
Praise to Jesus bringing.

Refrain

In that world of light and love,
Singing, gladly singing,
Soon we’ll join the host above,
Praise to Jesus bringing.
