On where the cross is leading,
Under the glorious banner go;
Marching in phalanx brave and strong,
We fear not to meet the foe.
On, on, united in His love!
On, on, to joy and peace above;
Marching together, loyal forever,
Jesus is leading—on for the King!
Closer around us thronging
Gather the mighty hosts of sin;
Yet, while our great commander leads,
We’ll fight, and the triumph win.
On where the cross is leading!
Fear not, tho’ marching days be long;
Ours is the battle, His the triumph,
Ours be the victor’s song.
