Representative Text

1 Christian, thy warfare will shortly be o'er,
O do not fear, do not fear;
Soon thou shalt rest where thy foes come no more;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.
What though the night be so dreary and long,
What though thy foes be unwearied and strong,
Soon thou shalt join in the conqueror's song;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.

2 What though the billows of life darkly roll,
O do not fear, do not fear;
Friends all forsake thee, and cares press thy soul;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.
Christian, remember that Christ loves thee still;
Only be faithful, and do Jesus' will,
Soon thou wilt stand with him on Zion's hill;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.

3 Christian, the angels will soon come for thee,
O do not fear, do not fear;
He whom thou lovest in glory thou'lt see;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.
O, if thou would'st to the end firm endure,
Keep thy robe holy, and spotless, and pure,
Victorious faith will make Canaan sure;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.

4 Christian, the shadows will soon flee away,
O do not fear, do not fear;
Then thou wilt enter an eternal day;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.
In the bright kingdom forever to dwell,
Join angel choirs, and the rich anthem swell,
Bid to thy sorrow a long, long farewell;
Be of good cheer, of good cheer.
