1 Through the night of doubt and sorrow
onward goes the pilgrim band,
singing songs of expectation,
marching to the promised land.
2 One the light of God's own presence
o'er his ransomed people shed,
chasing far the gloom and terror,
bright'ning all the path we tread.
3 One the object of our journey,
one the faith which never tires,
one the earnest looking forward,
one the hope our God inspires.
4 One the strain the lips of thousands
lift as from the heart of one;
one the conflict, one the peril,
one the march in God begun.
5 One the gladness of rejoicing
on the far eternal shore,
where the one almighty Father
reigns in love for evermore.
