lyrics

Through the night of doubt and sorrow,
Onward goes the pilgrim band,
Singing songs of expectation,
Marching to the promised land.
Clear before us through the darkness
Gleams and burns the guiding light:
In the Lord we march together
Stepping fearless through the night.

One the light of God's own presence,
O'er his ransomed people shed,
Chasing far the gloom and terror,
Brightening all the path we tread:
One the object of our journey,
One the faith which never tires,
One the earnest looking forward,
One the hope our God inspires.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Through the night we roam
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
We are marching home

One the strain the lips of thousands
Lift as from the heart of one;
One the conflict, one the peril,
One the march in God begun:
One the gladness of rejoicing
On the far eternal shore,
Where the one almighty Father
Reigns in love forevermore.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Through the night we roam
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
We are marching home (2x)

Bernhardt S. Ingemann, 1826
