1 Brother, on the holy way
Lift your heart to God today,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him;
Look with confidence above,
See his hand outstretched in love,
For it is his joy to help all those who trust him.

Refrain:
He will never fail to help you if you trust him,
Only trust him, fully trust him;
In the dark and trying hour,
He’ll sustain you by his pow’r,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him.

2 Should a trial press your soul,
Or the darkness hide your goal,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him;
When for grace and help you pray,
Do not think him far away,
He is ever near to help all those who trust him. [Refrain]

3 Should a sorrow fill your heart,
Do not from the Lord depart,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him;
Should your burden heavy grow,
Only trust and you shall know
That his hand is strong to help all those who trust him. [Refrain]

4 Strong and many are your foes,
But your need the Savior knows,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him;
He will shield you by his might,
He will put your foes to flight,
He will never fail to help you if you trust him. [Refrain]
