The Endeavor Band

Representative Text

1 A Christian band from far and near,
We meet to learn of Jesus here;
To read His Word, whose every line
Is full of hope and joy divine.

This blest Endeavour Band,
From o'er all this broad land,
Is gathered in His name,
To grasp the friendly hand;
Our thoughts are one in Thee,
Our prayer shall ever be,
That God may bless and ever keep
This Christian band.

2 A Christian, where all may sing
Glad songs of praise to God our King:
And youthful hearts may find the way,
To perfect peace and endless day. [Refrain]

3 Each willing hand and thankful heart,
Is bound again before we part
As sheaves on earth are bound with twine,
His word shall bind as cords divine. [Refrain]

4 The Master’s work we’ll still pursue,
And once again our pledge renew,
To Him who saves us by His love,
Till gathered home with Him above. [Refrain]
