534. If You Would Be a Pillar

1 If you would be a pillar in the church of God,
You must overcome the world,
You must overcome the world;
Die to fame and reputation, take the path that Jesus trod,
If you would be a pillar in the church of God.

Refrain:
He that overcometh shall be clothed in white,
And shall eat the hidden manna in the realms of light;
Reign on earth as king with Jesus, in the Word we’re told,
And in heaven shall forever walk the streets of gold.

2 If you would be a pillar in the church of God,
You must triumph over sin,
You must triumph over sin;
And be cleansed from every evil through the Savior’s precious blood,
If you would be a pillar in the church of God. [Refrain]

3 If you would be a pillar in the church of God,
You must conquer in His name,
You must conquer in His name;
Take the holy Bible way, and live beneath the cleansing flood,
If you would be a pillar in the church of God. [Refrain]
