Go Joyfully Forth To War Against Sin

Go joyfully forth
To war against sin,
Thro’ night and thro’ storm
The battle to win.
Tho’ tempests be raging,
Continue the fight;
Look ever to Jesus,
With Him there is light.

Tho’ clouds should enshroud
Thy fear-stricken heart,
Tho’ yielding to pain
Thy peace should depart,
Tho’ faintness possess thee
And joy take to flight,
Tell Jesus thy trouble,
With Him there is light.

Tho’ dark be the night
And strife may be long,
Tho’ idols stand firm
And capture the throng,
Look hopefully upward,
Keep Jesus in sight;
The heavens are open:
With Him there is light.
