CONFLICT AND HEROISM


124 Through the Night of Doubt and Sorrow
(ST.ASAPH. 8,7,8,7,D.)
Bernhrdt S. Ingermann,1825
Translated by Sabine Baring-Gould,1867
William S. Bambridge,1872
 
  1. Through the night of doubt and sorrow
    On-ward goes the pilgrim band
    Singing songs of expectation,
    Marching to the promised land.
    Clear before us through the darkness
    Gleams and burns the guiding light ;
    Brother clasps the hand of brother,
    Stepping fear-less through the night.
  2. One the light of God's own presence
    O'er his ransomed people shed
    Chasing far the gloom and terror,
    Brightening all the path we tread;
    One the object of our journey,
    One the faith which never tires,
    One the earnest looking forward,
    One the hope our God inspires ;

  3. One the strain that lips of thousands
    Lift as from the heart of one;
    One the conflict, one the peril,
    One the march in God begun ;
    One the gladness of rejoicing
    On the far eternal shore,
    Where the one Almighty Father
    Reigns in love forever-more.Amen.
