Through the night of sin and terror

Representative Text

1 Thro’ the night of sin and terror,
Thro’ grim war’s revolting gloom,
Gleamed the Faith that conquers error,
Breaks the clouds and cheats the tomb.
Rise, O brothers, light the torches
Bring to men their hearts’ desire;
Conqu’ring Christians, lift the signal
Light of faith’s undying fire.

2 Down the sorrow-burdened ages
Since Christ spoke the mystic word,
Shone a light upon time’s pages,
Flick’ring light of hope deferred.
Rise, O brothers, light the torches,
Lift the hearts of men still high’r;
Conqu’ring Christians, lift the signal
Light of hope’s undying fire.

3 Build ye now the kingdom glorious,
Christ’s abundant mission prove;
Faith and hope once more victorious
Triumph thro’ atoning love.
Rise, O brothers, light the torches,
Raise God’s standard high above;
Conqu’ring Christians, lift the signal
Light of God’s undying Love!
