Representative Text

Press on, press on,
The bugle notes are calling us to arm for fight;
Press on, press on,
For victory must ever crown the cause of right.

1 Our cause is needing all the good and true
There’s work enough for every one to do,
Oh, come and with us bravely take a stand
To drive the foe from out the land.

2 Each faithful soldier shall receive a crown
When comes the time to lay his armor down;
His work all done, his every conflict o’er
In peace he reigns forevermore. [Chorus]
