Representative Text

1 Faith, the rock on which we firmly rest,
And hope, the anchor to the golden shore,--
In these we find our comfort here be low,
But love abideth evermore.

Refrain:
Faith is the Christian's rock
And hope the anchor true;
These cheer us on our way thro' gloomy vales.
Both faith and hope may pass
With things of earth away,
But love abides; it never, never fails.

2 Faith, the star to which we look for peace,
And hope, the light it shows our pathway o'er,--
In these we find our guidance thro' life's way,
But love abideth evermore. [Refrain]

3 Faith will lead us to our home on high,
And hope will guide us to the open door;
By these we find our mansion in the sky,
But love abideth evermore. [Refrain]
