Hymn/Song Information

Faint yet persuing we press our way




“Faint, yet pursuing,”
we press our way
Up to the glorious gates of day;
Following Him who has gone before,
Over the path to the brighter shore.

“Faint, yet pursuing,”
from day to day,
Over the thorny
and blood-marked way;
Strengthen and keep us,
O Saviour Friend,
Ever pursuing,
unto life’s end!



“Faint, yet pursuing,”
Whate’er befall;
He who has died for us,
died for all;
So should they come
as a mighty throng,
Bearing His banner aloft with song.

“Faint, yet pursuing,”
from day to day,
Over the thorny
and blood-marked way;
Strengthen and keep us,
O Saviour Friend,
Ever pursuing,
unto life’s end!



“Faint, yet pursuing,”
till eventide,
Under the cross of the Crucified;
Knowing, when darkly
are skies o’ercast,
Sorrow and sighing will end at last.

“Faint, yet pursuing,”
from day to day,
Over the thorny
and blood-marked way;
Strengthen and keep us,
O Saviour Friend,
Ever pursuing,
unto life’s end!



“Faint, yet pursuing,”
the eye afar
Sees through the darkness
the Morning Star,
Shedding its ray for the weary feet,
Lighting the way
to the golden street.

“Faint, yet pursuing,”
from day to day,
Over the thorny
and blood-marked way;
Strengthen and keep us,
O Saviour Friend,
Ever pursuing,
unto life’s end!
