Hymn/Song Information

A soldierís course from battles won To




A soldierís course, from battles won
To new commencing strife:
A pilgrimís, restless as the sun;ó
Behold the Christianís life!


Prepared the trumpet's call to greet,
Soldier of Jesus, stand !
Pilgrim of Christ, with ready feet
Await thy Lord's command.


The hosts of Satan pant for spoil;
How can thy warfare close ?
Lonely, thou tread'st a foreign soil ;
How canst thou hope repose ?


Seek, soldier ! pilgrim ! seek thine home,
Reveal'd in sacred lore ;
The land, whence pilgrims never roam,
Where soldiers war no more


Where grief shall never wound, nor death
Disturb the Saviour's reign ;
Nor sin, with pestilential breath,
His holy realm profane :


The land, where, (suns and moons unknown,
And night's alternate sway,)
Jehovah's ever-burning throne
Upholds unbroken day :


The land, (for Heaven its bliss unseen
Bids earthly types suggest,)
Where healing leaves and fadeless green
Fruit-laden groves invest:


Where founts of life their treasures yield
In streams that never cease ;
Where everlasting mountains shield
Vales of eternal peace :


Where they who meet shall never part;
Where grace achieves its plan ;
And God, uniting every heart,
Dwells face to face with man.


---Alternative verses---


The hosts of darkness pant for spoil ó
How can our warfare close?
Lonely we tread a foreign soil ó
How can we hope repose?


O! let us seek our heavenly home,
Revealed in sacred lore;
The land whence pilgrims never roam,
Where soldiers war no more;


Where grief shall never wound, nor death,
Beneath the Saviourís reign;
Nor sin, with pestilential breath,
His holy realm profane;
