1 Move forward! valiant men and strong,
Ye who have prayed and labored long;
The time has come for you to rise,
For lo! the sun rolls up the skies.

Chorus:
Move forward, move forward,
All along the line,
Move forward, move forward,
The light begins to shine.

2 Move forward! each and every one,
The golden harvest is begun,
Ye reapers, come from glen and glade
And wield the sickle’s glitt'ring blade. [Chorus]

3 Move forward! reaping as you move!
Angels are watching from above!
Around are witnesses a host;
Arouse ye now and save the lost. [Chorus]

4 Move forward! day will die full soon;
How quickly evening follows noon!
Now is the time to work and pray;
Let glory crown the dying day. [Chorus]
