Be of Good Cheer

Representative Text

1 Be of good cheer, the Lord of hosts
Will surely help your case,
Freely He came and paid the debt
To save the human race.

Be strong, be strong,
Fear not, and still be strong,
Be of good cheer, be of good cheer,
Be of good cheer, be strong.

2 He who His life spared not for thee,
Will not forsake thee here,
If thou but keep on happily,
Still watching unto pray'r. [Refrain]

3 Be of good cheer, fear not, fear not,
Have faith in Heaven's love;
God will not leave the trusting soul,
But will a helper prove. [Refrain]

4 Be of good cheer, be strong, be strong,
Let nothing make you fear;
Just keep your spirit full of song,
And watching unto pray'r. [Refrain]
