Representative Text

1 I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
Thy precepts to love and obey,
And earnestly seek in Thy vineyard,
To labor while yet there is day;
The blood of Thy precious atonement
Doth cleanse even sinners like me,
So I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
I’ll try to prove faithful to Thee.

2 I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
And shun the temptations of sin,
For vain are its gilded allurements,
When holy peace dwelleth within;
The power of Thy life giving Spirit,
My bulwark and fortress shall be,
And I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
I’ll try to prove faithful to Thee.

3 I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
Tho’ shadows my way overcast;
Life’s trials are but for a moment—
Thy heaven forever shall last;
There dwelling in glory supernal,
My home with the angels shall be;
So I’ll try to prove faithful, dear Savior,
I’ll try to prove faithful to Thee.
