Representative Text

1 Never be discouraged, trust the Father’s word,
In the time of trial let His voice be heard;
Trusting in His promise, tho’ the waiting long,
He will surely bless us—praise Him with a song.

Praise Him, trust the Father’s word,
Praise Him, let His voice be heard,
Praise Him, tho’ the waiting long,
Praise Him, praise Him with a song.

2 Never be discouraged, if along our way
Disappointments meet us, tempting us to stray;
Closely cling to Jesus, ask Him for His grace,
In His words of comfort find a resting place. [Chorus]

3 Never be discouraged, patiently endure,
God doth often test us—trails make us pure;
Soon will come the reaping, then with joy we’ll sing,
Praise the Lord of harvest, praise the heavenly King. [Chorus]
