I mean to go right on until the crown is won; I mean to fight the fight of faith till life on earth is done. I’ll nevermore turn back, defeat I shall not know, For God will give me victory if onward I shall go.
Refrain: I’m going on, I’m going on, Unto the final triumph, I’m going on; I’m going on, I’m going on, Unto the final triumph, I’m going on.
Should opposition come, should foes obstruct my way, Should persecution’s fires be lit, as in the ancient day— With Jesus by my side, His peace within my soul, No matter if the battle’s hot, I mean to win the goal.
I see a shining crown awaiting over there, I see a mansion all prepared and decked with beauties rare: Shall that which intervenes deprive me of my right? Nay, on I’ll go until I reach that city of delight.
Then forward let us go, our hearts with love aflame, Our snowy banner borne aloft, inscribed with Jesus’ name. The hosts of evil flee, and heaven’s open gates Invite me now to hasten where eternal glory waits.
