Hymn 353Play music
1 Oft in danger, oft in woe,
Onward! brethren , onward go!
Fight the fight, maintain the strife,
Strengthened with the bread of life.
2 Onward!brethren , onward go!
Wage the war, and face the foe;
Will ye flee in danger's hour?
Know ye not your Captain's power?
3 Let your hearts no more be sad;
March in heav'nly armour clad;
Fight, nor think the battle long;
Soon shall vict'ry tune your song.
4 Let not sorrow dim your eye;
Soon shall ev'ry tear be dry;
Let not fears your course impede;
Great your strength if great your need.
5 Onward, then, in battle move!
More than conq'rors ye shall prove;
Though opposed by many a foe,
Christ's true soldiers, onward go!
