5260. Onward Will We Go

1. With our Savior close beside us,
Onward will we go;
With His loving hand to guide us,
Onward will we go.
Since His truth abideth ever,
And His love no power can sever,
Since His promise faileth never—
Onward will we go.

2. In the strength of His salvation,
Onward will we go;
Heeding not the world’s temptation,
Onward will we go.
Though the clouds may gather o’er us,
This our watchword and our chorus:
He has trod the way before us;
Onward will we go.

3. Every trial meekly bearing,
Onward will we go;
Each another’s burden sharing,
Onward will we go.
By His mighty arm defended,
By the heav’nly guards attended,
Till our life work here is ended,
Onward will we go.
