A foe is abroad, like a tyrantAuthor: Fanny Crosby
Tune: REVIVE US AGAIN
Published in 3 hymnals
1 A foe is abroad, like a tyrant he reigns
And his captives are groaning in fetters and chains.
To the rescue, let us hasten; to the rescue,— away!
To the rescue of the fallen, O hasten today.
2 With faith in the Lord and the pow'r of His might,
Let the armies of temp'rance their forces unite. [Refrain]
3 Go tell of God's love, and the demon shall fall;
Go tell them of Jesus, the Saviour of all. [Refrain]
4 Go seek out the lost in their bondage of sin,
There's hope for the fallen, go gather them in. [Refrain]
