Be Strong and True

Representative Text

1 Be strong and valiant for the truth,
Resist the tempter’s luring pow’r;
Shun all the avenues of sin,
And trust in God each day and hour.

Be strong, and firmly trust,
In God through every test;
Be true, and fearless stand,
And with His grace and strength be blest.

2 Cast not away the Arm of Strength
To yield unto the tempting throng;
For God is always strong and true
To help and keep us from the wrong. [Refrain]

3 He is our Rock, our Tower high,
And to the meek He giveth grace;
A shield He is to them that trust,
The joy of those who seek His face. [Refrain]

4 He will forsake you not He says,
But ever in your hearts abide,
And make you lie in pastures green;
In paths of pleasantness He’ll guide. [Refrain]
