We Are Soldiers On The Way


We are soldiers on the way to glory,
A loyal and gallant band;
We are singing out the gospel story
To the people of ev’ry land.

Refrain:
Marching, marching clad in armor bright,
Pressing onward, boldly for the right;
Never faint or fearing,
Knowing we are nearing
Victory in the fight;
Marching, marching clad in armor bright,
Pressing onward, boldly for the right;
Never faint or fearing,
Knowing we are nearing
Home in the land of light.

We’ve a Captain who is strong to lead us,
Who came to redeem his own;
From the iron chain of sin he freed us,
And we trust in his strength alone. [Refrain]

There are foes we have to meet without us,
And foes we’ve to fight within;
We must never let the Captain doubt us,
As we march on the hosts of sin. [Refrain]

And at last when all the strife is ended,
And all of the way is trod,
With the sound of song and triumph splendid,
We shall enter the home of God. [Refrain]
