If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mor­ris (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


We are marching on, ten thousand strong,
To battle for the Lord;
In His name we fight for the cause of right,
According to His word;
Gath’ring up each day, along the way,
Recruits for Him so true,
O soldiers brave with cheer and hope to save,
O come, there’s need of you.


Sing, O sing,
Make glad hallelujahs ring,
As we march along, let us shout in song
The praises of our King;
Yes sing, O sing,
Make glad hallelujahs ring,
As we march along,
Shout His praise in song,
O soldiers of the King.

Willing workers, come, let everyone
Step out for God and love;
Just a word in need, or a kindly deed,
Makes vict’ry forward move;
Never fail to do what is asked of you,
It may be just a smile,
’Twill help to win the fight that you are in,
Your part is well worthwhile.


We are marching on, a gladsome throng
Of Christian soldiers brave;
To the front we go, with our hearts aglow,
O see our banner wave;
Yes, the foe we’ll meet, but oh, how sweet
To conquer for the right!
With hearts sincere, be there no need to fear,
Sufficient in His might.
