"ONWARD AND UPWARD"

Verse One:
Onward still, and upward follow ever more,
Where our mighty Leader goes in love before;
Looking unto Jesus, reach a helping hand
To a struggling neighbor, helping him to stand.

Chorus:
Marching onward, upward,
Marching steadily, onward,
Jesus leads the way.
Marching onward, upward,
Onward unto glory, to the Perfect Day.

Verse Two:
Onward, ever onward, through the pastures green,
Where the streams flow softly, under skies serene;
Or, if need be, upward, o'er the rocky steep,
Trusting Him Who guides us,
Strong to save and keep.

[Repeat Chorus]

Upward, ever upward, toward the radiant glow,
Far above the valley, where the mist hangs low;
On, with songs of gladness,
Till the march shall end,
Where ten thousand, thousand hallelujahs blend.

[Repeat Chorus]

Marching onward, upward,
Onward unto glory, to the perfect day.
