We March To The Field With The Sword And


We march to the field with the sword and shield
Of him who has gone before us,
We walk in the light of his smile so bright,
His banner of love is o’er us;
We march to the strife and the toil of life,
Assured he will leave us never.
Our standard we raise to his honor and praise,
Our watchword “the cross forever.”

Refrain:
We march to the field with the sword and shield
Of him who has gone before us,
We walk in the light of his smiles so bright,
His banner of love is o’er us.

We march one and all at the Saviour’s call,
Defending the cause we cherish,
We tell how he came in his Father’s name
To rescue the souls that perish;
We know from the love of the Lord above
There’s naught in the world can sever,
Then on to the foe like the brave let us go,
Our watchword “the cross forever.” [Refrain]

We think of the rest of the pure and blest,
We think of the joyful story
That all may repeat at the Saviour’s feet,
And thank him for homes in glory;
Then on to the land of the shining band,
From dear ones no more to sever:
The Lord is our King; unto him we will sing,
Our watchword “the cross forever.” [Refrain]
