1 If you need uplifting, if you need a song,
Strength to help your soul to triumph over wrong,
Put your faith in Jesus, He is true and strong;
Faith will bring the blessing ev'ry time. (yes, ev'ry time.)

Chorus:
Faith will bring the blessing ev'ry time,
Tho' your faith be simple or sublime;
For the Savior knows the heart,
Ev'ry need He will impart;
Faith will bring the blessing ev'ry time. (ev'ry time.)

2 In some hour unguarded, if the foe assail,
Tho' you feel your weakness, let not courage fail;
Trust in Jesus only and you shall prevail;
Faith will bring the blessing ev'ry time. (yes, ev'ry time.) [Chorus]

3 On the Lord depending, sing along the way,
Naught can ever harm you if He is your stay;
Lean upon His promise till the better day;
Faith will bring the blessing ev'ry time. (yes, ev'ry time.) [Chorus]
