1 Through the night of doubt and sorrow
onward goes the pilgrim band,
singing songs of expectation,
marching to the promised land.

2 One the hymn a thousand voices
sing as from the heart of one;
one the conflict, one the danger,
one the march in God begun:

3 One the object of our journey,
one the faith that never tires,
one the urgent looking forward,
one the hope our God inspires:

4 Courage, therefore, Christian pilgrims;
with the cross before your eyes,
bear its shame, and fight its battle
die with Christ, with Christ arise!

5 Soon shall come the great awakening,
soon the bursting of the tomb;
then the scattering of all shadows
and the end of tears and gloom.

[extra refrain for Burtonwood setting (after v2,4 and at end following repeat of v1):
So we sing "Alleluia",
yes we sing "Alleluia."]
