Representative Text

1 Brighter and brighter the way is growing—
We will journey on;
Purer and clearer the streams are flowing—
We will journey on;
Streams that in peaceful murmurs glide,
Fed by a fountain deep and wide—
Cheered by their voice on every side,
We will journey on, we will journey on.

2 Brighter and brighter our hope is shining—
We will journey on;
Closer and closer our hearts are twining—
We will journey on;
Only a while we pause to rest
Under the cross that Jesus blessed;
Wearing His name on every breast,
We will journey on, we will journey on.

3 Firm to the arm of the Savior clinging—
We will journey on;
Sweeter and sweeter our songs are ringing—
We will journey on;
What if a passing cloud arise?
What if its gloom should veil our skies?
Touched by His hand, it fades, it dies—
We will journey on, we will journey on.

4 Nearer the mansions with beauty glowing—
We will journey on;
Nearer the flowers immortal growing—
We will journey on;
Nearer the tree of life so fair,
Nearer, the heav’nly fruit to share,
Glory to God! we’ll soon be there—
We will journey on, we will journey on.
