Go Forward O Children


Go forward, O children! the dawn shineth bright;
The morn of your youth is resplendent with light;
The day is before you, and straight is the road
That leads to the gate of the city of God.
Go forward, O children, go forward!

Chorus:
From glory to glory, from truth unto truth,
Go forward undaunted thro’ childhood and youth;
Your footsteps are treading where Jesus has trod;
Go forth in the strength and the splendor of God!

Go forward, O children! the way is uphill,
But climb on with patience and resolute will;
The servants of Jesus must learn to endure,
Their faith must be proved and their courage made sure.
Go forward, O children, go forward! [Chorus]

Go forward, O children! tho’ trials await,
The arm of your Leader is stronger than fate;
With Him as your Helper; Companion and Guide,
The rocks shall be rent and the seas shall divine.
Go forward, O children, go forward! [Chorus]

Go forward, O children, for Christ is your Light,
No evil can face His invincible might;
Unshaken thro’ trial, redeem’d and restored,
At last you shall enter the joy of your Lord.
Go forward, O children, go forward! [Chorus]
