1 Rise, O my soul, pursue the path
By ancient worthies trod;
Aspiring, view those holy men
Who lived and walked with God.
2 Tho' dead, they speak in reason’s ear,
And in example live;
Their faith, and hope and mighty deeds,
Still fresh instruction give.
3 ’Twas thro' the Lamb’s most precious blood
They conquered ev'ry foe;
To His almighty pow'r and grace
Their crowns of life they owe.
4 Lord, may I ever keep in view
The patterns Thou hast giv'n,
And ne’er forsake the blessed road
That led them safe to heav'n.
