Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
