Representative Text

1. Have faith in God, my brother,
And fight the hosts of sin;
The Captain of salvation
Will give you strength to win.

Have faith and pray,
The Word sincerely speak;
Trust God, obey,
All needed blessings seek.

2. O speak the word, my brother,
Its treasures rich unfold;
Point sinners to the Savior,
Whose love can ne’er be told. [Refrain]

3. Pray without ceasing, brother,
And all thy wants make known
To Him who reigns in Heaven
Upon His royal throne. [Refrain]
