We will never falter, when He bids us go;
Tho' His righteous purpose we may never know,
Yet we'll follow all the way

Forward! forward! to the promised land;

While we trust in Christ, our Buckler and our Shield
Pressing ever on the Spirit's sword we wield,
And we follow all the way

Forward! forward! to the promised land;
Forward! forward! let the chorus ring

From its mighty stronghold evil shall be hurled;
Christ, our mighty Captain, overcomes the world,
And we follow all the way.

Fierce the battle rages, but 'twill not be long,
Then triumphant shall we join the blessed throng,
Joyfully uniting in the victor's song
If we follow all the way

Forward! forward! to the promised land;
Forward! forward! let the chorus ring
We are sure to win with Christ our King
