Go forward in the name of Jesus

Representative Text

1. Go forward in the name of Jesus,
Go forward without fear;
The conflict may be long and weary,
But help divine is near.

Go forward in the name of Jesus,
Till you enter the promised land;
Go forward in the name of Jesus,
And with conquering legions stand.

2. Go forward day by day relying
On guidance from above;
From peril you are safely shielded
By everlasting love. [Chorus]

3. Press on, however steep or strong
The way in which you go;
Depend on him who overcometh,
Whene'er you meet the foe. [Chorus]

4. Pause not, and soon o'er Jordan's river,
With rest and triumph won,
Your soul will thrill with joy while hearing
The Master say, "Well done." [Chorus]
