Representative Text

1 In the march of life, thro' the toil and strife
Of the winding path before us,
We have naught to fear with a Saviour near,
And his banner waving o'er us.
If the tempest rise in the dark'ning skies,
We will yield to no repining;
Tho' the storm roar loud, thro' the rifted cloud
There's a golden sunbeam shining.

Refrain:
In the march of life, thro' the toil and strife
Of the winding path before us,
We have naught to fear with a Saviour near,
And his banner waving o'er us.

2 In the Christian race if we take our place,
We may run and weary never;
Daily pressing on till the goal be won,
Unto Jesus looking ever.
Casting all our care on the Lord by prayer,
He will keep our feet from falling;
We will sure obtain, nor have run in vain
For the prize of God's high calling. [Refrain]
