Lyrics

We are child­ren of the King,
And His prais­es we will sing,
As we jour­ney to our home above—
His ban­ner ov­er us is love!

Refrain

Marching! March­ing!
With hap­py hearts we on­ward move;
No foe we fear, with our cap­tain near—
His ban­ner ov­er us is love!

He, the glo­ri­ous Son of God,
Hath the way be­fore us trod;
Over ev­ery foe we’ll con­quer­or prove—
His ban­ner ov­er us is love!

Refrain

Fearless in our lead­er’s might,
Strong to do and dare the right;
We will jour­ney to our home above—
His ban­ner ov­er us is love!
