1 Our faith is in the Christ who walks
With men today, in street and mart;
The constant friend who thinks and talks
With those who seek him with the heart.
2 His gospel calls for living men,
With singing blood and minds alert;
Strong men, who fall to rise again,
Who strive and bleed, with courage girt.
3 We serve no God whose work is done,
Who rests within his firmament;
Our God, his labors but begun,
Toils evermore, with power unspent.
4 God was and is and e'er shall be;
Christ lived and loved— and loves us still;
And man goes forward, proud and free,
God's present purpose to fulfill.
