Representative Text

1 By the help of God, we’ll endeavor
To gather the lost ones in,
Who have strayed away on the mountain,
Who dwell in the haunts of sin.

We’ll endeavor, we’ll endeavor,
By the help of God we’ll endeavor;
To the fold of Christ from the haunts of sin,
We will gather the lost ones in.

2 By the help of God, we’ll endeavor
To spread the glad news abroad,
Of the Christ who saves and redeems men,
Who calls wand’rers home to God. [Chorus]

3 By the help of God, we’ll endeavor
In Christ’s work to never pause,
Give our means and time with our talents,
To help on our Master’s cause. [Chorus]
