Representative Text

1 Have a purpose as you pass along,
Journeying upon life’s way;
Take the word of Jesus as your guide,
Do His will each day.

Lives of purpose, lives of prayer,
Such are needed ev’rywhere,
Lives that have an aim in view,
Loyal hearts, to Jesus true.

2 Lift the fallen, point them to the King,
Lend the weak a helping hand;
Asking daily for the Spirit’s pow’r,
Firm for Jesus stand. [Refrain]

3 Strength for labor, Jesus will provide,
Fear not then nor falt’ring be,
Looking upward, tho’ the foe assail,
On to victory. [Refrain]
