42. Keep Moving on the Way

1 There is only one condition ev'ry soldier keeps in view,
As he journeys with the saints to endless day,
If he'd keep his soul from falling and the narrow way pursue,
Is to ever keep moving on the way.

Chorus:
Keep moving on the way,
Let us ever keep moving on the way,
Keep moving on the way;
Let us ever keep moving on the way.

2 Oh, this secret of progressing, is a consolation deep,
For this earthly life will never, never pay,
If we lay aside our duties and resign our eyes to sleep,
And forget to keep moving on the way. [Chorus]

3 In the galleries of heaven, angel hosts are looking down,
And they watch us as we struggle day by day;
To the victor in the battle God will give a starry crown,
If we ever keep moving on the way. [Chorus]
