We will keep a bright lookout,
That we do not go astray;
We will keep a bright lookout,
Night and day;
Tho’ we are a youthful band,
We will work with heart and hand,
Till we gain the starry land,
Far away.
Chorus:
We’ll all be happy,
All be happy,
Happy in the land far away.
We will keep a bright lookout,
Jesus will our care repay;
We will keep a bright lookout
Night and day;
We will steadily push on,
Till our labor here is done,
And heavenly crown is won,
Far away.
Chorus:
2.
4.
We will keep a bright lookout,
While upon the earth we stay,
We will keep a bright lookout
Night and day:
O! our hearts are stout and strong,
And we’ll seek to conquer wrong,
Till we sing the victor’s song,
Far away.
Chorus:
We will keep a bright lookout
And our Saviour’s word obey,
We will keep a bright lookout,
Night and day.
If we strive to do our best,
God will take us to his breast,
And his peaceful home of rest,
Far away.
Chorus:
