Lyrics

Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 47

1. Come, let us anew our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year,
And never stand still till the Master appear.
His adorable will let us gladly fulfill,
And our talents improve,
By the patience of hope and the labor of love,
By the patience of hope and the labor of love.

2. Our life as a dream, our time as a stream,
Glides swiftly away,
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay.
The arrow is flown, the moments are gone,
The Millennial year
Presses on to our view, and eternity’s here,
Presses on to our view, and eternity’s here.

3. O that each in the day of His coming may say,
“I have fought my way thro’—
I have finished the work Thou didst give me to do.”
O that each from his Lord may receive the glad word:
“Well and faithfully done;
Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne,”
“Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne.”

Lyrics from Songs of Zion, 1908 (no. 98)

1. Come, let us anew our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year,
And never stand still till the Master appear.
His adorable will let us gladly fulfil,
And our talents improve,
By the patience of hope and the labor of love,
By the patience of hope and the labor of love.

2. Our life as a dream, our time as a stream,
Glides swiftly away,
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay.
The arrow is flown, the moments are gone,
The millennial year
Presses on to our view, and eternity's here,
Presses on to our view, and eternity's here.

3. O that each in the day of His coming may say,
“I have fought my way thro'—
I have finished the work Thou did'st give me to do.”
O that each from his Lord may receive the glad word:
“Well and faithfully done;
Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne,
Enter into my joy and sit down on my throne.”

Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 39
P.M.
1. Come, let us anew our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year,
And never stand still till the Master appear.

2. His adorable will Let us gladly fulfil,
And our talents improve,
By the patience of hope and the labour of love.

3. Our life is a dream; Our time, as a stream,
Glides swiftly away;
And the fugitive moment refuses to say.

4. The arrow is flown; The moment is gone;
The millennial year
Rushes on to our view, and eternity's here.

5. O that each in the day of his coming may say,
"I have fought my way through;
I have finished the work thou didst give me to do."

6. O that each from his Lord May receive the glad word,
"Well and faithfully done;
Enter into my joy, and sit down on my throne."
