Full Text

1 O child of God, be true,
Be noble, strong, and brave;
Though helpers may be few,
Thy God is near to save.

O child of God, be true, be true;
With all the world against thee,
O child of God, be true.

2 Fear not to claim His might,
The battle is not thine;
Walk not be feeble sight,
But trust the grace divine. [Refrain]

3 O child of God, stand fast,
Yield not to doubt and fear;
keep that which now thou hast;
The King will soon appear. [Refrain]

4 Be earnest in the fight,
Be valiant for the Lord;
And then a crown of life
Will be thy sure reward. [Refrain]
