1 Christ would have us brave,
For courage He supplies,
Fears depart from ev’ry heart
That on His strength relies.
We would have us joyous day by day,
With a joy that e’er will shine,
He will guide and cheer, as a Friend so dear,
With His comradeship divine.
We will be brave, aye brave
With allegiance loyal aye;
Hope He gave, when we sought His chosen way.
We will be strong, aye strong,
As His will we strive to do,
To the Christ Who guide,
Whose help abides,
We will be true!
2 Christ would have us strong,
We have His promised word,
Strength and pow’r for ev’ry hour
Is given by our Lord. [Chorus]
3 Christ would have us true,
Unfalt’ring, faithful still,
Take His cross, count gain as loss,
Obedient to His will. [Chorus]
