1 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Shedding its beautiful ray,
Clear as the brow of the morning,
Bright as the eye of the day.
Tranquilly shining, never declining,
Keep thy faith steady, and wait, oh, wait on the Lord.
Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Firm as a crock let it be;
Pray, and believe when thou prayest,
Love hath an answer for thee.
2 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Looking to Jesus alone;
Then will the blessing thou sleekest
Drop like the dew from his throne. [Refrain]
3 Keep thy faith ready, my brother,
Souls by its light may be won;
Trust till thy journey is over,
Trust till thy life work is done. [Refrain]
