1. In this world of sin and sorrow
There are burdens we must bear,
There are conflicts and sore trials
That we here must daily share.
Unto him that overcometh
Is the precious promise given;
Unto him that overcometh,
There awaits a crown in heaven.
2 There's a tempter to be baffled,
There are wrongs to be made right;
There are stubborn hearts to conquer,
There are foes to put to flight.
3 There are lamps to be kept burning,
There are duties for each day;
There are souls that must be rescued
From their erring, sinful way.
4 There are feeble hands to steady,
There are fainting hearts to cheer;
There are warnings to be given,
There's a God that we must fear.
