Representative Text

1 Be not discouraged, God still is leading,
Stand on the promises found in His Word,
True pray’r prevaileth, God never faileth,
Go and obey the commands you have heard.

Refrain:
Be not discouraged, God still is leading,
Faithful is He if we trust in His name,
His banner o’er us, His cause victorious,
Eternal Sov’reign, forever the same.

2 Be not discouraged, God still is leading,
Not of ourselves can we overcome sin,
By faith prevailing, evil assailing,
Trusting in Jesus for strength we shall win. [Refrain]

3 Be not discouraged, God still is leading,
Ours not to murmur, but ours to obey,
Telling His glory, in song and story,
Following faithfully all of the way. [Refrain]

4 Be not discouraged, God still is leading,
Glorious the crown that we one day shall wear,
Pleasures supernal, riches eternal,
Free from the sorrow of sin and despair. [Refrain]
