Ever Be Faithful

Representative Text

1 Ever to Jesus be faithful and true,
He has been tender and faithful to you;
Follow Him daily whatever betide,
Follow your Leader and Guide.

Ever be faithful,
Ever be faithful,
Ever be faithful,
Ever be true.

2 Honor the Master by doing His will,
Love Him, and all His commandments fulfill;
And as you journey life's pilgrimage through,
Ever be faithful and true. [Chorus]

3 Cling unto Jesus, thy Strength and thy Might,
Cling in the darkness, and cling in the light,
Honor His name whatever you do,
Ever be faithful and true. [Chorus]
