His Challenge

Representative Text

1 ‘Tis His challenge ringing,
Forward, forward!
Christ’s own call ‘tis bringing,
Forward, forward!
There’s a task before us,
Glad of heart begin,
Forward, forward!
All for Christ we’ll win!

Chorus:
His ringing challenge calls us,
Come with hearts so true,
Onward, onward,
His great work we’ll do.
Forward, forward, glad of heart begin,
Forward, forward!
All for Christ we’ll win!

2 Call of faith so daring,
Forward, forward!
Vict’ry banners bearing,
Forward, forward!
Glorious service waits us,
May we enter in,
Forward, forward!
All for Christ we’ll win! [Chorus]

3 Call of courage loyal,
Forward, forward!
Call of Leader royal,
Forward, forward!
Never can we falter
Doubt and fear are sin,
Forward, forward!
All for Christ we’ll win! [Chorus]
