607 (7.7.7.7.) Joseph Swain

Brethren while we sojourn here,

Fight we must, but should not fear;

Foes we have but we've a friend,

One who loves us to the end.

Forward then with courage go,

Long we shall not dwell below;

Soon the joyful news will come,

"Child, your Father calls: Come home!"

In the world a thousand snares

Lie to take us unawares;

Satan with malicious art,

Watches each unguarded part.

But from Satan's malice free,

Saints shall soon victorious 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 will also conquer these;

Then the joyful news will come,

"Child, your Father calls: Come home!"
