MARCH along, march along, with a song

The world and the world to be,
The better world to be.

Chorus:
On, on, by dark or dawn,
'Neath the constellation
Of a mighty nation;
The stars of night are not more bright
Than the flag we love so well,
The flag we love so well.

Let us fight with our might for the best
Till tyrant kings shall cease,
Till East or West, there be none oppressed
In the coming Age of Peace,
The coming Age of Peace.

Chorus: On, on, by dark or dawn, etc.

Every kiss that we miss shall abide
As a seal of the joy to be,
And the mother or bride shall march by our side
An Angel of Liberty,
An Angel of Liberty.

To the strong, like a song from the grave
The voices of martyrs call:
"Go forth ye and save the weak and the slave
In the brotherhood of all,
The brotherhood of all."

Chorus: On, on, by dark or dawn, etc.
