Representative Text

1 Look up when all the way is dark,
And see the stars above;
Your ev’ry step is guided by
A mighty Saviour’s love.

“Greater is He that is in you
Than he that is in the world,”
By whom the forces of evil
Shall from their pow’r be hurled;
This is your consolation,
This is your great salvation,
Greater is He that is in you
Than he that is in the world.

2 Press on, although you cannot see
Whereon your foot may fall;
For One who passed this way before
Most surely know it all. [Refrain]

3 Lay hold upon the promises,
And to the end endure;
For He who made them, well can keep
Your trusting soul secure. [Refrain]
