Representative Text

1 Steadily onward! O turn not aside,
Steadily, steadily on!
Upward and onward whatever betide,
Steadily, steadily on!
Jesus will help you to walk in His way,
Guiding your feet lest they wander astray,
Ever be ready to hear and obey—
Steadily, steadily on.

2 All that can harm you, be ready to shun,
Steadily, steadily on!
Doing the duty that waits to be done,
Steadily, steadily on!
Helping the burdens of others to bear,
Seeking to comfort the hearts that despair,
Strive for a crown that is worthy to wear—
Steadily, steadily on.

3 Noble, true-hearted wherever you go,—
Steadily, steadily on!
Setting the world with your gladness aglow,
Steadily, steadily on!
Living for Jesus wherever you are,
Shine as a radiant,, beautiful star,
Scattering brightness and blessing afar,—
Steadily, steadily on.
