1 Does the way seem weary as you travel on?
Be strong, in the Lord;
If your strength is failing and your courage gone.
Be strong, in the Lord.

Refrain:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
Be strong, be strong;
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
And the power of His might;
If the cross is heavy and your heart is weak,
If for help you’re crying and for strength you seek;
Hear the words of scripture as to you they speak,
Be strong, be strong.

2 Seek not worldly wisdom for the strength you need,
Be strong, in the Lord;
But the words are written and to you they plead
Be strong, in the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Then be not faint-hearted till the shadows come,
Be strong, in the Lord;
Till the march is over and you gather home,
Be strong, in the Lord. [Refrain]
