|87 - Be strong and true|
Be strong and valiant for the truth,
Resist the tempter's luring pow'r;
Shun all the avenues of sin,
And trust in God each day and hour.
Be strong, and firmly trust|
Be strong, and firmly trust, will you firmly trust
In God through every test;
In God through every test, through every test;
Be true, and fearless stand
Be true, and fearless stand, will you fearless stand
And with His grace and strength be blest.
Cast not away the Arm of Strength|
To yield unto the tempting throng;
For God is always strong and true
To help and keep us from the wrong.
He is our Rock, our Tower high,|
And to the meek He giveth grace;
A shield He is to them that trust,
The joy of those who seek His face.
He will forsake you not He says,|
But ever in your hearts abide,
And make you lie in pastures green;
In paths of pleasantness He'll guide.
