Author: Howard Arnold Walter Hymnal: Worship in Song #261 (1996) Meter: 188.8.131.52.10 Topics: Care for one another First Line: I would be true, for there are those who trust me Lyrics: 1 I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare,
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.
2 I would be friend of all the foe, the friendless;
I would be giving, and forget the gift;
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
I would look up, and laugh and love and lift,
I would look up, and laugh, and love and lift.
3 I would be prayerful through each busy moment;
I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod.
I would be tuned to hear the slightest whisper;
I would be constantly in touch with God,
I would be constantly iin touch with God.
