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!
