Representative Text

1 Christian, be true to Christ who died to save you,
True to the holy name you bear;
Be what your Lord each moment here would have you,
Keeping your garments always pure and fair.

Be true ev’ry moment, O Christian,
O be true, where your duty shall call you,
For no evil shall ever befall you,
If you are true to your Saviour each day.

2 Christian, be true to friends of earth who love you,
True to your faith in God’s own word;
True to your hope of glory grand above you,
True to the vows you made the church of God. [Refrain]

3 Christian, be true, this is the path of blessing,
Jesus was true to man and God;
If you are true, you Master’s name confessing,
You shall receive the faithful one’s reward. [Refrain]
