Representative Text

1 Forward, forward, hear the King’s command,
Forward, forward, happy Christian band,
Firmly, gladly, thro’ a stranger land,
Marching on the way to glory.
Wave our banners, follow our Redeemer;
He is our Friend and strong to defend,
He is faithful, faithful to his promise,
He will keep us safely to the end.

Refrain:
Forward, forward, hear the King’s command,
Forward, forward, happy Christian band,
Firmly, gladly, thro’ a stranger land,
Marching on the way to glory.

2 Forward, forward, hearts and voices raise,
Joyful, joyful, sing aloud his praise,
He will lead us gently all our days,
Till we reach the gate of glory.
In temptation, if we only trust him,
Why should we fear, O why should we fear?
Angels o’er us loving watch are keeping,
Jesus our Redeemer still is near. [Refrain]

3 Forward, forward, ever brave and strong,
Marching, marching, steadily along,
Onward, upward, where a shining throng
Wait for us at home in glory.
O what rapture when at last we gather
Home on the shore, the bright golden shore,
Sweetly resting by the crystal river,
We shall dwell united evermore. [Refrain]
