537. Christian, Rise and Act Your Creed

1 Christian, rise and act thy creed;
let your prayer be in your deed;
Seek the right, perform the true,
raise your work and life anew.

2 Hearts around thee sink with care,
you can help their load to bear;
You can bring inspiring light,
strengthen them to do the right.

3 Offer others hope and joy,
and God's worship your employ;
Giving thanks in humble zeal,
learning all God's will to feel.

4 Come then, law divine, and reign;
faith that doubt assails in vain,
Perfect love bereft of fear,
born in heaven and radiant here.
