Onward We Will Go ~ Hymn

 

Onward We Will Go

With our Savior close beside us,
Onward will we go;
With His loving hand to guide us,
Onward will we go.
Since His truth abideth ever,
And His love no power can sever,
Since His promise faileth never—
Onward will we go.

In the strength of His salvation,
Onward will we go;
Heeding not the world’s temptation,
Onward will we go.
Though the clouds may gather o’er us,
This our watchword and our chorus:
“He has trod the way before us;
Onward will we go.”

Every trial meekly bearing,
Onward will we go;
Each another’s burden sharing,
Onward will we go.
By His mighty arm defended,
By the heav’nly guards attended,
Till our life work here is ended,
Onward will we go.

Words: Fanny Crosby (1820-1915)

  1. On this journey that is our challenge! But..since His truth abideth ever,
    and His love no power can sever, since His promise faileth never…certainly onward we go!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing a little known song of Fanny Crosby’s. Ira Sankey provided a fine tune for it as well. If you’d like to hear it, check out the Cyber Hymnal at http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/o/n/w/onwarwwg.htm

    It’s not surprising that today there are many unsung treasures written by this remarkable woman, since she wrote somewhere between 8,500 and 9,000 of them! And today is the 159th anniversary of her conversion. If you’d like to learn a bit more about her, check out my daily blog Wordwise Hymns for today.
