Lyrics

うしろのものを忘れて
前のものに向かって
心尽くし進んでて
上の召し、追い求めて

前にある競走、頑張ろう
まつわりつく罪、捨てよう
重荷の代わり、忍耐を
イエスから目を離さないよ

どんな嵐にあっても
主にある我が信頼を

みなの足を洗って
愛をこめて、手伸ばして
十字架負い、自分捨てて
日々イエスについて行って

偉くなりたいと思う者
みなに仕える者となれよ
先に立ちたいと思う者
イエスはしもべとなりなさいっと

どんな栄光受けても
主に栄光をかえそう

いつも主にあって喜ぼう
あの日まで、この一言を
よくやった、忠実なしもべ
我が喜び(ともに)喜んでくれ!

Translation

(direct translation)

Forgetting things behind
Looking forward to things ahead
Pressing on forward with all heart
Seeking after the upward calling

Let us persevere in the battles before us
And throw off the sin that entangles us
Take on patience in place of baggage
And not take our eyes off of Jesus

No matter the storm I'm inside
My trust is in the Lord

Washing the feet of others
Stretching out my hands in love
Shouldering my cross and throwing my self away
Daily following after Jesus

If I want to become great
I have to become the servant of all
And if I want to stand ahead of others
Jesus says, become a servant!

No matter what glory we receive
Let us give back the glory to God

Let us rejoice in the Lord always
Until that day, with those words,
Well done, faithful servant
Enter into My joy!
