Brethren while we so-journ here,

Fight we must, but should not fear.

Foes we have, but we've a friend,

One that loves us to the end.

For-ward, then, with cour-age go,

Long we shall not dwell be-low;

Soon the joy-ful time will come,

Child, your Father calls, come home.

In the way a thousand snares

Lie to take us unawares:

Satan, with malicious art,

Watches each unguarded heart;

But from Satan's malice free

Saints shall soon in glory be;

Soon the joyful news will come,

"Child your Father calls, come home."

But of all the foes we meet

None so oft mislead our feet,

None betray us into sin

Like the foes that dwell within:

Yet let nothing spoil your peace,

Christ shall also conquer these;

Then the joyful new will come,

"Child, your Father calls, come home."
