Representative Text

1 Move forward! valiant men and strong,
Ye who have prayed and labored long;
The time has come for you to rise,
For lo! the sun rolls up the skies.

Move forward, move forward,
All along the line,
Move forward, move forward,
The light begins to shine.

2 Move forward! each and every one,
The golden harvest is begun,
Ye reapers, come from glen and glade
And wield the sickle’s glitt'ring blade. [Chorus]

3 Move forward! reaping as you move!
Angels are watching from above!
Around are witnesses a host;
Arouse ye now and save the lost. [Chorus]

4 Move forward! day will die full soon;
How quickly evening follows noon!
Now is the time to work and pray;
Let glory crown the dying day. [Chorus]
