O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Onward and upward and forward today,
Onward renewing thy strength in the way;
Upward, tho' rugged and steep be the hill,
Forward the word of the Lord to fulfill!

Onward and upward and homeward the while,
Upward, thy sunlight the Saviour's own smile;
Onward, His presence thy shade from the heat,
Homeward, for home after exile is sweet!

Onward and upward be strong in the Lord,
He is thy shield, thine eternal reward;
He is gone forward thy place to prepare,
Homeward thou goest to dwell with Him there.

Chorus:
Onward and upward with carols of praise,
Angelic-like anthems in pilgrim-like lays;
Mountain and valley shall echo Thy song.
Onward and upward, it is not for long.
