Hermas:

Frances R. Havergal, 1871

Valour:

Arthur H. Mann, 1889

Refrain

John S. B. Monsell, 1863

On our way rejoicing,

As we homeward move,

Hearken to our praises,

O thou God of love!

Is there grief or sadness?

Thine it cannot be!

Is our sky beclouded?

Clouds are not from thee!

On our way rejoicing,

As we homeward move,

Hearken to our praises,

O thou God of love!

If with honest-hearted

Love for God and man,

Day by day thou find us

Doing what we can,

Thou who giv'st the seedtime

Wilt give large increase,

Crown the head with blessings,

Fill the heart with peace.

On our way rejoicing

Gladly let us go;

Conquered hath our Leader,

Vanquished is our foe!

Christ without, our safety;

Christ within, our joy;

Who, if we be faithful,

Can our hope destroy?

Unto God the Father

Joyful songs we sing;

Unto God the Savior

Thankful hearts we bring;

493

Unto God the Spirit

Bow we and adore,

On our way rejoicing

Now and evermore!

Amen.
