Hymn/Song Information

Onward Christian though the region




Onward, Christian, though the region
Where thou art be drear and lone;
God has set a guardian legion
Very near thee; press thou on.


By the thorn road, and none other,
Is the mount of vision won;
Tread it without shrinking, brother,
Jesus trod it; press thou on.


By thy trustful, calm endeavor,
Guiding, cheering, like the sun.
Earth-bound hearts thou shalt deliver,
O, for their sake, press thou on !


Be this world the wiser, stronger,
For thy life of pain and peace;
While it needs thee, oh, no longer
Pray thou for thy quick release.


Pray thou, Christian, daily rather
That thou be a faithful son,
By the prayer of Jesus, “Father
Not my will, but Thine, be done.”


*** alt vers


By the thorn-wood, and none other,
Is the mount of vision won;
Tread it without shrinking, brother,
Jesus trod it; press thou on.
