Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see his banners go!
Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening Steal across the sky.
Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose.
With Thy tend'rest blessing
May our eyelids close.
Astronomy is certainly an alluring science; set an astronomer before a telescope, and an overwhelming attraction draws his soul away through the tube up into heaven, and leaves his body without mundane interests.
Through the night of doubt and sorrow Onward goes the pilgrim band, Singing songs of expectation, Marching to the promised land.
