Representative Text

1 Oh hear now His word,
When the clouds are gath’ring ‘round thee,

Refrain:
They shall mount up, up, on wings as eagles,
They shall run, run, run and not be weary,
They shall walk, walk, walk the path to Glory,
Nor faint along the way.

2 Oh take now thy shield,
When the fiery darts assail thee,
They that wait upon the Lord,
Shall exchange their strength. [Refrain]

3 Oh seek ye His face,
When the road is rough before thee,
They that wait upon the Lord,
Shall exchange their strength. [Refrain]
