1410. Faint, Yet Pursuing

1. 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.

Refrain
Faint, yet pursuing, from day to day,
Over the sure and the blood-marked way;
Strengthen and keep us, O Savior, friend,
Ever pursuing, unto life’s end.

2. 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. [Refrain]

3. 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. [Refrain]

4. Faint, yet pursuing, the eye afar
Sees thro’ the darkness the morning star,
Shedding its ray for the weary feet,
Keeping the way, to the golden street. [Refrain]
