CONFLICT AND HEROISM
|124||Through the Night of Doubt and Sorrow|
|Bernhrdt S. Ingermann,1825Translated by Sabine Baring-Gould,1867||William S. Bambridge,1872|
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.
- 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 ;
- 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.
