Holy Spirit, come confirm us
© 1969, 1995 by Hope Publishing Co
Through the night of doubt and sorrow
Onward goes the pilgrim band,
Singing songs of expectation,
Marching to the promised land.
Clear before us through the darkness
Gleams and burns the guiding light:
Brother clasps the hand of brother,
Stepping fearless through the night.
One the light of God’s own presence,
O’er His ransomed people shed,
Chasing far the gloom and terror,
Brightening all the path we tread:
One the object of our journey,
One the faith which never tires,
One the earnest looking forward,
One the hope our God inspires.
One the strain that lips of thousands
Lift as from the heart of one;
One the conflict, one the peril
One the march in God begun:
One the gladness of rejoicing
On the far eternal shore,
Where the one almighty Father
Reigns in love for evermore.
Onward, therefore, pilgrim brothers,
Onward, with the cross our aid!
Bear its shame, and fight its battle,
Till we rest beneath its shade.
Soon shall come the great awaking,
Soon the rending of the tomb;
Then the scattering of all shadows,
And the end of toil and gloom.
The above recordings may not match your hymn-book lyrics exactly. This is because some tunes come in many versions (changed timings, additional notes, different harmonies etc). You are advised to check the various recordings to find the one that suits best your requirements.
You can use programs like Audacity and Song Surgeon to adjust the tempo, pitch and number of verses in the MP3 files.
If you feel the linked tune is the wrong tune (I could have made a mistake in creating the Hymn_Code), please e_mail me with the details (Hymnbook name, and hymn number, and what you think is the problem).
