Faithfully, faithfully, soldier fight on

Faithfully, faithfully, soldier fight on

Author: S. W. Widney
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Faithfully, faithfully, soldier, fight on,
Soon will the vict'ry through Jesus be won;
Never a battle your leader has lost:
Faithfully, faithfully, stand to your post.

2 Tempest-tossed mariner, unfurl thy sails,
Jesus will fill them with heavenly gales;
Soon you'll cast anchor in heaven's broad bay:
Faithfully, faithfully, hold on thy way.

3 Faithfully, faithfully, pilgrim, press on,
Soon will your wearisome journey be done;
Soon will you reach your bright home in the skies;
Faithfully, faithfully, press to the prize.

4 Faithfully, faithfully, mourner, pray on,
Soon will the clouds that hang o'er thee be gone;
Soon will thy darkness be turned into day:
Faithfully, faithfully, watch thou and pray.

5 Watchman of Zion, oh, lift up thy voice,
Say to the faithful in Israel, rejoice;
Call the poor sinner from ruin's dread verge:
Faithfully, faithfully, God's message urge.
