1. Called to serve Him, heav’nly King of glory,Chosen e’er to witness for his name,Far and wide we tell the Father’s story,Far and wide his love proclaim.
[Chorus]Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;Onward, ever onward, as we glory in his name;Forward, pressing forward, as a triumph song we sing.God our strength will be; press forward ever,Called to serve our King.
2. Called to know the richness of his blessing—Sons and daughters, children of a King—Glad of heart, his holy name confessing,Praises unto him we bring.
