Through The Night Of Sin And Terror


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.

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.

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!
