Farther On

Don't you hear the spirit calling

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Don’t you hear the spirit calling,
Saying, child this is the way?
If you’ll only walk now in it
You will never go astray.

Farther on, O yes, still farther
Count the miles stones one by one;
Jesus will forsake you never
It is better farther on.

2 O, how sweet to live for Jesus
In this world of shame and sin,
And our robes all washed and ready
With our Lord to enter in. [Chorus]

3 O, how sad to hear the weeping
And the wailing for the lost,
As they’re banished from yon heaven
Going down a mighty host. [Chorus]
