Representative Text

O soul in the struggle and trials of life,
Jesus is faithful, faithful and true;
He’ll give you the courage to conquer the strife,
Jesus is faithful and true.

Chorus:
He’s faithful and true and His life paid the cost,
He suffered and died, that you would not be lost,
Then why on the waves, will you be tempest tossed?
Jesus is faithful and true.

He’s promised to save you, to be your best friend,
Jesus is faithful, faithful and true;
He’s promised to guide you, support and defend,
Jesus is faithful and true.

A mansion in heaven He’s gone to prepare,
Jesus is faithful, faithful and true;
He’s promised to take you to live with Him there,
Jesus is faithful, faithful and true
Jesus is faithful and true.
