Onward, Onward

Lenten Reading for March 27, 2013: 

Hebrews 12:1-3

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart.

Onward, Onward
by Fanny Crosby

Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Casting quickly every weight aside;
While we run the race that's set before us,
Firm as a rock let our faith abide.

Lo, a cloud of witnesses behold us,
They through faith were victors in the race;
Let us gladly follow their example,
Trusting the Savior for strength and grace.

Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Pressing forward, we the race will run;
Claiming ever His divine protection,
We shall not fail till the crown is won.

Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Joy awaits us on the other shore;
There we'll sing the song of our redemption,
Safe, safe at last when the strife is o'er.
