by Mary Ann Kidder (1820 - 1905)

We'll still keep marching on
Language: English 
No matter what temptations 
Assail us on our way,
We'll still keep traveling onward 
Along the heav'nly way; 
We'll practice good to others 
While living here below, 
And daily pray, to God each day, 
As marching on we go. 

We'll still keep marching on, marching on, marching on, 
We'll still keep marching one, marching on to the end. 

If enemies revile us, 
We'll not revile again; 
For Jesus' own example, 
Once dwelt with sinful men; 
He, patient, was, and lowly, 
To friend as well as foe, 
Then let us strive like him to live 
As marching on we go! 

We'll still keep marching on, marching on, marching on, 
We'll still keep marching one, marching on to the end. 

We'll study well the Bible 
The holy word of God, 
'Twill prove a lamp to guide us 
Along the toilsome road, 
We'll sing the songs of Zion 
When in the valleys low.
Bethlehem's star, will shine afar 
As marching on we go! 

We'll still keep marching on, marching on, marching on, 
We'll still keep marching one, marching on to the end.
