We Are Toiling Through The Darkness


We are toiling thro’ the darkness, but our eyes behold the light
That is mounting up the eastern sky, and beating back the night;
Soon with joy we’ll hail the morning when our Lord will come in might,
For Truth is marching on.

Refrain:
Marching, marching, Truth is ever marching,
Brighter, clearer, comes the happy dawn;
Marching, marching, Truth is ever marching,
Ever marching on.

He will come in glorious majesty to sweep away all wrong,
He will heal the broken-hearted, and will make His people strong;
He will teach our souls His righteousness, our hearts a glad new song,
For Truth is marching on. [Refrain]

He is calling on His people to be faithful, prompt, and brave,
To uplift again the fallen, and to help from sin to save;
To devote themselves for others, as Himself for them He gave,
For Truth is marching on. [Refrain]

Let us fight against the evil with our faces t’ward the light,
God is looking thro’ the darkness, and He watches o’er the fight;
And His joy will be our recompense, His triumph crown the right,
For Truth is marching on. [Refrain]
