1 Though faint, yet pursuing, we go on our way;
The Lord is our leader, His Word is our stay;
Though suffering, and sorrow, and trial be near,
The Lord is our refuge, and whom can we fear?
2 He raiseth the fallen, He cheereth the faint;
The weak and oppressed, He will hear their complaint;
The way may be weary, and thorny the road,
But how can we falter? Our help is in God!
3 And to His green pastures our footsteps He leads;
His flock in the desert, ho kindly He feeds!
the lambs in His bosom He tenderly bears,
And brings back the wanderers safe from the snares.
4 Though clouds may surround us, our God is our light;
Though storms rage around us, our God is our might;
So faint, yet pursuing, still onward we come;
The Lord is our leader, and heaven is our home!
