Tune: I CANNOT GO BACK
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 For Canaan I've started, and on I must go,
"Till all the bright glories of Eden I know;
I've made no reserve, and I'm sure I'll not lack,
While onward I journey, and I do not draw back; and do not draw back.

2 My soul is enkindled with rapture and love,
I fain would ascend to my Jesus above;
But nay, I must follow in his humble track,
And prove my obedience by not drawing back.

3 Then on let us press; for Jesus is near;
And strengthen each other with words of good cheer;
With zeal ever buoyant and courage ne'er slack,
Let's be true to our King and never draw back.
