440. March on, my soul, with strength

1 March on, my soul, with strength,
march forward, void of fear;
he who has led will lead
while year succeeds to year;
and as you travel on your way,
his hand shall hold you day by day.

2 March on, my soul, with strength;
in ease you dare not dwell;
high duty calls you forth;
then up, and serve him well!
Take up your cross, take up your sword,
and fight the battles of your Lord!

3 March on, my soul, with strength,
with strength, but not your own;
the conquest you will gain
through Christ your Lord alone;
his grace shall nerve your feeble arm,
his love preserve you safe from harm.

4 March on, my soul, with strength,
from strength to strength march on;
warfare shall end at length,
all foes be overthrown.
And then, my soul, if faithful now,
the crown of life awaits your brow.
