Forward and Upward Lord We Go!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Forward and upward Lord we go,
No turning back for us Your called;
Fighting the fight of faith and foe,
Clothed with Your armour overall.

Forward and upward Lord we go,
Watching and waiting unto to prayer;
To sloth and sin we all say no,
Your grace and truth our daily wear.

Forward and upward Lord we go,
Taking our cross in fearlessness;
While in this world we’ll not let go,
Towards our home we ever press.

Forward and upward Lord we go,
Denying self and this world’s ease;
Seeking our Saviour here below,
Then heaven’s welcome and release.

(Tune: Duke St; Rimington; LM)
