1 Marvel not when friends forsake you,
For the world is ever vain;
Only seeking sinful pleasures
And the joys of earthly gain.

Refrain:
Marvel not whate’er befall you,
Trust the Savior all the way,
For one day He’ll bear you safely
To the realms of brightest day.

2 Marvel not, oh! unbeliever,
If your way is rough and bare;
Marvel not, for without Jesus,
You no holy joys shall share. [Refrain]

3 Marvel not that Satan’s power
Can allure a soul to strife;
Keep your own heart fixed on Jesus,
And you’ll win eternal life. [Refrain]
