109. Marching On to Crowns of Glory

1 Faithful soldiers of the King,
Marching on to crowns of glory,
Let your shouts of vict'ry ring,
Glad hallelujahs sing.

Chorus:
Marching on, to the starry crowns of glory,
Marching on, with our faces t'ward the sky;
Marching on, let Emmanuel's banner's fly,
Marching onward, to our home on high.

2 Clad in armor pure and bright,
Marching on to crowns of glory,
Trust ye in your Leader's might,
And triumph in the fight. [Chorus]

3 Christ the Lord will be your shield,
Marching on to crowns of glory;
While the sword of truth you wield,
On life's great battlefield. [Chorus]

4 Go, rejoicing on your way,
Marching on to crowns of glory;
Soon will break the drawing ray,
The coronation day. [Chorus]
