Representative Text

1 I will go in the strength of the Lord,
To the work he has giv'n me to do,
In the strength that is mighty to save,
To the field where the lab'rers are few.

Chorus:
I will go, where he leads,
In my weakness his pow'r I shall know;
All things by his grace I can do -
In the strength of the lord I will go.

2 I will go at his gentle command,
Tho' I know not the way of his choice;
But the Lord knoweth me by my name,
So I'll follow my kind Shepherd's voice. [Chorus]

3 I will go in the strength of the Lord,
And no evil shall cause me to fear;
Thro' green pastures, or thro' death's dark vale,
I will go, with my Comforter near. [Chorus]

4 I will go, in his panoply clad,
And undaunted by mightiest foe:
For no weapon can pierce faith's strong shield, -
In the strength of the Lord I will go. [Chorus]
