1 God’s word commands that we go forward,
Though forward means the rolling sea;
But ere we step into the torrent,
Before our feet the waves will flee.
The waves will flee if bravely we go forward,
And we shall walk the way dry-shod;
What though the sea now rolls before us,
Forward go, go forward!
2 The Captain’s voice repeats: “Go forward!”
Although the path is not in sight;
Behind is death and desolation,
On either side the gloom of night. [Refrain]
3 Ye hosts of God, fear not, go forward!
All will be right if you obey;
The waters shall not overflow you,
For God will roll the sea away. [Refrain]
