This is an old song could it be what your looking for?

intro:

This truth is marching on,

He has sounded out the trumpet that shall never sound retreat,
He has sifted out the souls of men, before His judgment seat,
O be swift my soul to answer Him, Be jubilant my feet.
Our God is marching on.

Glory Glory hallelujah
Glory Glory hallelujah
Glory Glory hallelujah
This truth is marching on.

Tis the old ship of zion,
It's the hope for the lost and dying,
It's a soul saving station,
It's the tower of salvation,
It's the Church triumphant oh Lord,
And it's built by the hand of the Lord.

I'm talking about church in the book of Revelations,
It's built on the rock, it's got a firm foundation,
It's been through the flood, it's been through the fire,
But one of these days this church is gonna move up higher,
It's the church triumphant oh Lord,
And it's built by the hand of the Lord

It's been through the storm (Oh yes)
But the wind couldn't turn it (Oh no)
It's been through the fire (Oh yes)
But the fir couldn't burn it (Oh no)
Been feed to the lions (Oh yes)
But the lions couldn't eat it (Oh no)
Fought many a wars (Oh yes)
But never defeated (Oh no)

Well It's the Church triumphant oh Lord,
And it's built by the hand of the Lord.

I'm talking about church in the book of Revelations,
It's built on the rock, it's got a firm foundation,
It's been through the flood, it's been through the fire,
But one of these days this church is gonna move up higher,
It's the church triumphant oh Lord,
And it's built by the hand of the Lord

This truth is marching on.

Some of the words may not be exactly right but maybe this is the song your looking for.
