The theme of Marching On brings to mind the hymn, “Onward Christian Soldiers.”

Lyrics: Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924;  Music: Arthur S. Sullivan, 1842-1900

  1. Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus going on before.
    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
    Forward into battle see His banners go!

    • Refrain:
      Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
      With the cross of Jesus going on before.
  2. At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
    On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
    Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
    Brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
  3. Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
    Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
    We are not divided, all one body we,
    One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.
  4. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
    But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
    Gates of hell can never ’gainst that church prevail;
    We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.
  5. Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
    Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
    Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
    This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Here are the questions for this month’s tag:

  1. Are you or is anyone in your family Irish?

Yup. My grandma’s family (dad’s side) emigrated from Ireland, plus my mother’s side has Irish, too.  When I had color in my hair, it had red hues. My dad had very red hair. Also, my dad used to teach at Notre Dame, and we have been “Fighting Irish” all my life.

  1. Do you wear green for St. Patrick’s Day?

Yes. Especially when I was still teaching, I wore outfits / colors for most of the holidays.

  1. Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day?

No.

  1. If you spotted a leprechaun, followed him, saw a rainbow and a pot of gold…what would the gold be to you? Actual gold? Or something else?

I think I’ve already found the “pot o’ gold” – the Bible.

  1. What shade of green is your favorite? Provide an image if possible.

I wear this color a lot, in various hues.

  1. What do you like best about the month of March? What do you like the least?

Although March is a tough month weather-wise, I like the promise of spring it brings.

  1. What’s the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to you?

I can’t say much of anything about luck, as I don’t believe in it. God blesses, we obey, we receive His blessings…

For this month I am tagging…

Anyone who is Irish, or is not Irish; or who likes Irish, or doesn’t like Irish

  1. My Kathy! I was born and raised in South Bend where the Irish are! We could’ve once met! I live 30 mins away now more in country away from the city. I was about to post my march tag too!
