Representative Text

1 In the garden, boldly, Peter would have fought;
Now he answers coldly, Nay, I know Him not.

Refrain:
I would stand forever near my Savior’s side,
Lest to glory yonder I should be denied.

2 Tho’ life’s stony pathway be with dangers fraught,
Let my falterings never say, I know Him not. [Refrain]

3 Though long years of sorrow be my earthly lot,
Let my murmurings never Say, I know Him not. [Refrain]

4 In the dark temptation, vows and prayers forgot,
Let my yielding never way, I know Him not. [Refrain]

5 So, in toil or pleasure, deed or word or thought,
Let me never, never, say, I know Him not. [Refrain]
