I don't know whether such a chant actually existed or if it was made-up for the movie, but at first they say "und vorwärts fest den Schritt, wir gehn an unsers Führers Hand", which is a (modified) line from the Christian song "Nun aufwärts froh den Blick gewandt" (Nun aufwärts froh den Blick gewandt und vorwärts fest den Schritt! Wir gehn an unsers Meisters Hand...), and in the end they say "wir schreiten Seit' an Seit'", which is a line from the popular workers' youth song "Wann wir schreiten Seit' an Seit'".
(For those having trouble finding it in the movie, the chant in question appears at about 1:54:00.)
