When The Foe Is Pressing Near


When the foe is pressing near,-
Surrender not!
Christ will help you, never fear,-
Surrender not!
Never yield unto the wrong,
Weary not,-the fight prolong,
Cheer the fainting with a song,-
Surrender not!

Refrain:
Surrender not! surrender not!
Hold the place that you have nobly won,-
Surrender not!
Surrender not! surrender not!
Hold it in the name of Christ the Son,-
Surrender not!

By the trust imposed in you,-
Surrender not!
Ever loyal be, and true,-
Surrender not!
By the debt that Jesus paid,
By the vows that you have made,
by the crown that shall not fade,-
Surrender not! [Refrain]

Cling to Jesus thro’ the strife,-
Surrender not!
Cling to him thro’ all your life,-
Surrender not!
Keep the promise that you gave,
Keep in place among the brave,
Trust the Lord to keep and save,-
Surrender not! [Refrain]
