Oft in Danger, Oft in Woe

 


Oft in danger, oft in woe,1
onward, Christians, onward go;
bear the toil, maintain the strife,
strengthened with the bread of life.

Onward, Christians, onward go,
join the war, and face the foe;
will ye flee in danger’s hour?
Know ye not your Captain’s power?

Let your drooping hearts be glad;
march in heavenly armour clad;
fight, nor think the battle long:
victory soon shall tune your song.

Let not sorrow dim your eye;
soon shall every tear be dry:
let not fears your course impede;
great your strength, if great your need.

Onward then in battle move;
more than conquerors ye shall prove:
though opposed by many a foe,
Christian soldiers, onward go.
