1 Can He count on you
In the testing time?
Will you prove your worth
By a faith sublime?
Will you stand for Him
Where another fails?
Will your courage last
When the foe assails?

Can He count on you?
Can He count on you?
‘Tis the Lord who calls
For the brave and true.
Can He count on you,
Can He count on you,
Will you stand the test?
Will you do your best?
Can He count on you?

2 Can He count on you
When there’s need for one
Who will choose the right
And the evil shun?
Will you turn away
From the tempter’s lure?
When the weak must fail
Will your strength endure? [Refrain]

3 Can He count on you
When there’s much to fear?
When the perils grow
And the foe draws near?
Where the need is great,
Will He find you there?
With a loyal heart
Will you do and dare? [Refrain]
