On and On

By Lloyd O. Ivie

From our home in the hills –
Zion’s calm, happy vales,
We have come, from the land of the free.
Where true prophets and seers,
Crowned with love, each avails
As a light shining forth on the sea.

Refrain:

On and on is our song
We have come here to win
Not a moment shall pass idly by,
On and on, up and up
With a soul pure within
We may all reach the top if we try.

They have called us to labor,
A message we bring
To all nations, all tongues far and near,
Joy and peace and good will
Everlasting, we sing
Thru our Lord and our King ever dear.

Let us ponder our calling
And think what it means,
To stand as true servants of God
Endowed with the Priesthood
With hearts pure and clean
Bearing on as our parents have trod.

As children of Saints
We have nothing to fear
If we love one another and try
With prayers and in faith
To fulfill each his sphere
We shall reach our glad home by and by.

(1914)
