Forward! by Carrie Breck

Christ, our mighty Captain, leads against the foe,
We will never falter when He bids us go;
Tho’ His righteous purpose we may never know,
Yet we’ll follow all the way.

Refrain

Forward! forward! ’tis the Lord’s command;
Forward! forward! to the promised land;
Forward! forward! let the chorus ring:
We are sure to win with Christ, our King!

Satan’s fearful onslaughts cannot make us yield;
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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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

Refrain
