Representative Text

1 Onward now! the trumpet call is sounding;
Onward now! with holy rapture bounding;
Heart and voice in harmony resounding,
Sweetly join the chorus of the skies.

Praise our God, who reigneth evermore;
Praise our God, His blessed name adore;
Onward now! His mighty love proclaiming,
Sweetly join the chorus of the skies.

2 Onward now! be valiant, brave and daring;
Onward now! the Christian armor wearing;
Onward now! the royal standard bearing,
Let our songs in happy concert rise. [Refrain]

3 Onward now! the King has gone before us;
Strong in Him, our triumph will be glorious;
Onward now! His loving care is o’er us;
In His hand behold the heavenly prize. [Refrain]

4 Onward now! be firm and faithful ever;
Onward now! our courage failing never;
Looking home beyond the silent river,
Looking home where pleasure never dies. [Refrain]
