    Verse 1
    Trusting in the Lord thy God,
    Onward go! onward go!
    Holding fast His promised word,
    Onward go!
    Ne'er deny His worthy name,
    Though it bring reproach and shame;
    Spreading still His wondrous fame,
    Onward go!

    Verse 2
    Has He called thee to the plough?
    Onward go! Onward go!
    Night is coming serve Him now;
    Onward go!
    Faith and love in service blend;
    On His mighty arm depend;
    Standing fast until the end,
    Onward go!

    Verse 3
    Has He given thee golden grain?
    Onward go! Onward go!
    Sow, and thou shalt reap again;
    Onward go!
    To thy Master's gate repair
    Watching be and waiting there;
    He will hear and answer prayer:
    Onward go!

    Verse 4
    Has he said the end is near?
    Onward go! Onward go!
    Serving Him with holy fear,
    Onward go!
    Christ thy portion, Christ thy stay,
    Heavenly bread upon the way;
    Leading on to glorious day:
    Onward go!

    Verse 5
    In this little moment then,
    Onward go! Onward go!
    In thy ways acknowledge Him;
    Onward go!
    Let His mind be found in thee;
    Let His will thy pleasure be;
    Thus in life and liberty,
    Onward go!
