 Song 97

Forward, You Ministers of the Kingdom!

Forward, You Ministers of the Kingdom!

(2 Timothy 4:5)

1. Go forward in preaching the Kingdom

To people in ev’ry land.

With love in your hearts for your neighbor,

Help meek ones to take their stand.

Our service to God is a priv’lege;

His word we are glad to proclaim.

Go out in the field and keep preaching;

Give witness to God’s holy name.

(CHORUS)

Forward, boldly preach the

Kingdom message ever far and wide.

Forward, faithful, loyally remaining

on Jehovah’s side.

2. True ministers keep pressing forward

With God’s prize of life in view.

We follow the steps of our Master

With hearts that have been made new.

The good news of God’s coming Kingdom

Is something that all need to hear.

We preach in the strength of Jehovah;

With him there is nothing to fear!

(CHORUS)

Forward, boldly preach the

Kingdom message ever far and wide.

Forward, faithful, loyally remaining

on Jehovah’s side.

 3. Together we press ever forward,

God’s remnant and other sheep.

The old and the young men and women

In step with the truth do keep.

Our service we hold to be sacred;

Our worship is never routine.

To God may we prove ever worthy

By conduct that’s holy and clean.

(CHORUS)

Forward, boldly preach the

Kingdom message ever far and wide.

Forward, faithful, loyally remaining

on Jehovah’s side.
