Hymn/Song Information

Faint not Christian though the road Leading to Thy




Faint not, Christian! Though the road
Leading to Thy blest abode
Darksome be, and dangerous too,
Christ, thy Guide, will bring thee through.


Faint not, Christian! Though in rage
Satan would thy soul engage;
Gird on faith’s anointed shield,
Bear it to the battle-field.


Faint not, Christian! Though the world
Hath its hostile flag unfurled;
Hold the Cross of Jesus fast,
Thou shalt overcome at last.


Faint not, Christian! Though within
There’s a heart so prone to sin;
Christ, thy Lord, is over all,
He’ll not suffer thee to fall.


Faint not, Christian! Though thy God
Smite thee with the chastening rod;
Smite He must with Father’s care,
That He may His love declare.


Faint not, Christian! Jesus near;
Soon in glory will appear;
And his love will then bestow,
Power to conquer every foe. 


Faint not, Christian! Look on high;
See the harpers in the sky:
Patient wait, and thou wilt join—
Chant with them of love divine.


---Alternative verses---


Faint not, Christian! Though in rage
Satan doth thy soul engage;
Take thee faith’s anointed shield,
Bear it to the battle-field.


Faint not, Christian! Christ is near;
Soon in glory He’ll appear;
Then shall end thy toil and strife,
Death be swallowed up of life.
