Onward We Go

I have been on this journey for a long time.
As long as I have Jesus I am fine.
Every day I sing and pray.
No longer on this earth do I wish to stay.
I will not give up or give in even when the tears flow.
I have a destination and onward I go.

I have made a reservation.
Heaven in my destination.
I will take from this earth no treasure.
God will bless me without measure.
I am not afraid to die.
When I leave this earth I will fly.
Homeward bound will I be.
Where my Jesus I shall see.

We all go through trials and tribulation all over the nation.
We should never give in, but fight against sin.
Times are hard and tough.
We will make it through with Jesus who strengthens us.
We must spread the love of Jesus all across the land.
We, God’s people must take a stand.
When our journey here comes to an end our life would have only began.

We have made our reservation.
Heaven is our destination,
We will take from this earth no treasure.
God will bless us without measure.
We will not be afraid to die.
When we leave this world we will fly.
Homeward bound will we be.
Where our Jesus we will see.
