And To Glory I Will Go

When I set out for glory,
I left the world behind;
Determined for a city
That’s out of sight to find.

And to glory I will go,
And to glory I will go,
I will go, I will go,
Onto glory.

I left my worldly honor,
I left my worldly fame,
I left my young companions,
And with them, my good name.

And to glory I will go,
And to glory I will go,
I will go, I will go,
Onto glory.

The Lord, he loves the beggar,
Who truly begs in-deed;
He always will relieve him,
Whene’er he stands in need.

And to begging I will go,
And to begging I will go,
I will go, I will go,
Onto begging.

I do not beg for riches,
Nor too be dressed fine:
The garment that he’ll give me,
The sun it will outshine.

And to begging I will go,
And to begging I will go,
I will go, I will go,
Onto begging.

And now we are encouraged,
Come let us travel on,
Until we join the angels,
And sing the holy song.

And to glory I will go,
And to glory I will go,
I will go, I will go,
Onto glory.
