1 Far down the ages now,
Much of her journey done,
The pilgrim church pursues her way,
Until her crown be won.
2 No wider is the gate,
No broader is the way,
No smoother is the ancient path
That leads to life and day.
3 No sweeter is the cup,
Nor less our lot of ill;
'T was tribulation ages since,
'T is tribulation still.
4 No slacker grows the fight,
No feebler is the foe,
Nor less the need of armor tried,
Of shield, and spear, and bow.
5 Thus onward still we press,
Through evil and through good—
Thro' pain, and poverty, and want,
Thro' peril and thro' blood.
6 Still faithful to our God,
And to our Captain true,
We follow where he leads the way;
The Kingdom in our view.
