In the fight, say, does your heart grow weary?
Do you find your path
Is rough and thorny?
And above the sky
Is dark and stormy?
Never mind, go on!
Lay aside all fear, and onward pressing,
Bravely fight, and God will give His blessing;
Though the war at times may prove distressing,
Never mind, go on!


When the road we tread is rough,
Let us bear in mind,
In our Savior strength enough
We may always find;
Though the fighting may be tough
Let our motto be:
Go on, go on to victory!

Faithful be, delaying not to follow
Where Christ leads, though
It may be through sorrow;
If the strife should fiercer
Grow tomorrow,
Never mind, go on!
Cheerful be, it will your burdens lighten,
One glad heart will always others brighten;
Though the strife the coward’s soul may frighten,
Never mind, go on!


When downhearted, look away to Jesus,
Who for you did shed
His blood most precious;
Let us say, though all
The world should hate us;
Never mind, go on!
Do your best in fighting for your Savior,
For His sake fear not to lose men’s favor;
If beside you should a comrade waver,
Never mind, go on!
