Hymn/Song Information

Though faint yet pursuing we go on our way




Though faint yet pursuing we go on our way;
The Lord is our leader, our stronghold and stay;
Though suffering and sorrow and trial we bear,
The Lord is our refuge, and whom shall we fear?


He raiseth the fallen, He cheereth the faint;
If the weak are oppressed, He hears their complaint;
The way may be dreary, and thorny the road,
But why should we falter? Our help is in God.


And to His green pastures our footsteps He leads;
His flock in the desert how kindly He feeds!
The lambs in His bosom He tenderly bears,
And brings back the wanderers safe from the snares.


Though clouds may surround us, our God is our light;
Though storms rage around us, our God is our might;
So faint yet pursuing, still onward we move,
The Lord is our leader; our home is above.


And there shall His people eternally dwell
With Him who has led them so safely and well;
The toilsome way over, the wilderness passed,
And Canaan the blessed is theirs at the last.


---Alternative verses---


Though faint yet pursuing we go on our way;
The Lord is our leader, his word is our stay;
Though suffering and sorrow and trial be near,
The Lord is our refuge, and whom shall we fear?


He raiseth the fallen, He cheereth the faint;
If the weak, and oppressed—He will hear their complaint;
The way may be dreary, and thorny the road,
But why should we falter? Our help is in God.


Though clouds may surround us, our God is our light;
Though storms rage around us, our God is our might;
So faint yet pursuing, still onward we move,
The Lord is our Leader; and heaven is our home.
