ONWARD, UPWARD, HOMEWARD!

Verse 1:
“Onward, upward, homeward!”
Joyfully I flee
From this world of sorrow,
With my Lord to be;
Onward to the glory,
Upward to the prize,
Homeward to the mansions,
Far above the skies.

Refrain:
Onward to the glory,
Upward to the prize,
Homeward to the mansions,
Far above the skies.

Verse 2:
“Onward, upward, homeward!”
Here I find no rest;
Treading o’er the desert,
Which my Saviour pressed;
“Onward, upward, homeward!”
I shall soon be there,
Soon its joys and pleasures,
I, thro’ grace shall share.

Verse 3:
“Onward, upward, homeward!”
Come along with me;
Ye who love the Saviour,
Bear me company;
“Onward, upward, homeward!”
Press with vigor on;
Yet a little moment
And the race is won.

Albert Midlane and Ira D Sankey 1887
