1 Look up when all the way is dark,
And see the stars above;
Your ev’ry step is guided by

“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]
