1 Travel onward and be true,
For the Lord depends on you,
And the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Ever bravely battle on,
Till the crown of life is won,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon.

Refrain:
On, the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Yes, the glory day is coming very soon;
Bravely carry on the fight,
Daily spread the gospel light,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon.

2 Labor on in faith and love,
Sure that Jesus reigns above,
And the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Help the weary on the way
To the realms of endless day,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon. [Refrain]

3 Pearly gates and mansions bright
Very soon will greet our sight,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Soon our happy souls shall view
Jesus our Redeemer, too,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon. [Refrain]
