Representative Text

1 Onward, move ye foll’wers of the Lord,
Trusting in His pow’r, hark’ning to His word;
Gird ye on the Spirit’s mighty sword,
Working out your own salvation.

God is faithful, He is working too,
Of His pleasure, both to will and do,
Now your vow of diligence renew
Working out your own salvation.

2 See before, a crown of glory lies,
Run the heav’nly race, reaching for the prize;
Forward facing, mount the starry skies,
Working out your own salvation. [Refrain]

3 Marching on as soldiers of the King,
Let the hills and plains with rejoicing ring;
Ye shall triumph as ye shout and sing,
Working out your own salvation. [Refrain]

4 To yon city bathed in golden light,
City of the King, climb the pathway bright;
Faith shall vanish, turned to blissful sight,
Working out your own salvation. [Refrain]
